We are looking to bring up an internal IM server that utilizes our Active Directory tree. However, we have a few specific requirements. I was hoping someone could tell me if Openfire would be able to meet our needs or if I should look elsewhere.
Basically we need the following-
- The ability to control which AD Groups can use the IM Server
- The ability to limit IM’ing to those within the same AD Group (example: DSmith is the the IT group, he should not be able to talk to/add HBrown in the HR group)
- The ability to determine who a user sees the first time they login (their contact list is already created, and cannot be edited)
Would Openfire and Spark be able to handle all of these requests?
