Pidgin Clients "Not Authorized"

Hello, I downloaded and set up Openfire 3.9.1 using the embedded database. I created users in Openfire then began testing with Pidgin.

I am using Pidgin 2.10.9. I set up Openfire on a Windows 7 Pro PC to test (ABC-EFG57.HIJ). “HIJ” being the domain.

Here are the settings in Pidgin:

Basic:

  • Username: Joe
  • Domain: HIJ
  • Resource: ABC-EFG57
  • Password: *****

Advanced:

  • Connection Security: Require encryption
  • Connect Port: 5222
  • Connect Server: ABC-EFG57.HIJ
  • File transfer proxies: proxy.eu.jabber.org (default)

Proxy:

  • Proxy type: Use Global Proxy Settings

I created two users, Joe and John. I can see them in the Openfire User/Groups page and the icon is “green” for Available.

Though when I add each as a Buddy on the other client they show as “Not Authorized” and no IM can be sent.

This is my first try with either application so I am asking if there are any ideas of what I may be over looking?

Thank you in advance for your help. Paul

You need to install the Client Control plugin.

The settings for it are found under Server -> Client Management -> Permitted Clients.

McDev, thanks for the info. I did add the Plug In. Are there any others you recommend?

The results are such.

If I click on the “Re-enable” button it thinks for a few seconds then nothing.

When you add users in Pidgin using Buddies -> Add Buddy make sure you chose the account of the user who is sending the request and specify the other user’s user name as a Jabber ID: e.g. john@domain.com

The other user should receive an authorization request. XMPP clients can have very different user interfaces for this kind of stuff, and most of them are confusing in my opinion. (The service for which I use Openfire uses a custom XMPP chat client.)

So would my Jabber ID be Paul@AMS1/DBS-FIN57 ? Taken from the log above.

I cannot even get to the point of adding Buddies now as it will not let me enable any user.

When I create the user “on the server” I fill in the info click add and a Registration Failed (409: Conflict) error appears.

I am stumped at this point.
