phpBB integration

Dear users, developers! The latest version (3.0) of phpBB, a forum software, has support for Jabber. It can notify users through Jabber (eg. OpenFire) of new messages in topics. I tried to get it to work it with OpenFire, but there are some authentication problems (says “no auth method”). I tried RC2 of phpBB, not RC4 is out, and there are even more fixes in the thir CVS. Would be nice if someone knowledgable would check phpBB out, and work with them to fix this issue. OpenFire is so much more simple to administer than the other servers… Thanks.

I have been breaking my head against my monitor… lol

The problem is about DIGEST-MD5. I think JAVA and PHP does not agree with this method…

PHPBB3 tells: "

Hi there,

i also tried to use my jabber-server with the latest phpbb 3 rc 8 and it does not work out.

I started a topic about that (http://www.igniterealtime.org/community/message/161544#161544). But my error-message is different from yours.

May u got an workaround?

Thanks.
