Seraching other (non-openfire) servers

I’ve had a bit of a look through some “search” threads but haven’t found anything that seems likely to help.

I am running Openfire as my server to communicate with other locations some of which are not running openfire.

I need to configure it so users on the openfire servers can search the user directories on other servers, and likewise we need the people on the other servers to be able to search users on the Openfire server.

Is this something that is easily achieved. Feel free to point me to an existing thread if you know of one that contains a specific solution.


Not sure how it should work with other non-openfire servers. But probably search should be working with server-2-server connection enabled between those servers. Though i haven’t done this with openfire servers, so can’t say that search should really work in such scenario.
