One of the guys in JAdmin offered this solution. I don’'t know if it will help, but take a look an let me know.
Like I mentioned before, for our implementation of the jabber server,
our security policy stated that we needed encrypted passwords. I
modified some of the jabberd2 code for MD5 digest authentication and MD5
hash storage of passwords. Basically, the password field then becomes
I created a patch that allowed this to work and posted it on
http://www.marquard.net/jabber/ (patch 64).
Now this does become a hacked version of the jabber server, meaning not
all functionality as far as authentication is working. Basically, you
can only authenticate if your client supports md5 digest auth… Exodus
as an example.
Again, this is not a very good solution for all situations, but for
ours, it worked so I thought I would share.
