Idiots guide!!! I am a newbie to openfire. I have installed the server onto a windows 2003 R2 server. I have configured the server name during the setup to be example.com. Note i did NOT use the FQDN of the server, i.e. servername.example.com I have also setup LDAP and this works fine.
I am able to log into the server using an pandion IM client if i use the username and password option. However i would like to use the windows authentication option.!!
I have followed the the instructions to the letter for the plugin http://norman.rasmussen.co.za/dl/sasl-sspi/
I have copied the three files over from the
and i have edited the jre\lib\security\java.security file.
finally i have added the following
to the server set up.
When i try connect the IM client i get the same old can not sign in. you have entered an incorrect password or the accoutn does not exist pop up.!!!
I have tried everything from chaning the name of the server to be the FQDN sername.example.com to changing the sasl.mechs.realm to be the example.com and yet nothing seems to work. Am i missing something here? Any help would be really appreciated. this is driving me crazy when i am sure it should be straight forward.
