I’ve searched and searched and can’t find an answer. I have a new Openfire 4.2.3 installed on Windows Server 2016. I’m running Pidgin 2.13. I can’t get Pidgin to connect. I’m running LDAP and the Openfire server sees all of the users in my domain. When I run Pidgin in debug, I get:

I previously had an old Wildfire Server up but ran into some certificate issues, so I tried to build a new server. Firewall should be all set to allow traffic due to having a previous Wildfire server up.
What am I missing?
