Total newb to IM Servers in general and Openfire/Spark in particular. I am evaluating IM for use in our operations group so that people can all be aware of daily issues as they arise. Have installed Openfire and Spark for a few users and created a Chat Room for the daily thread. I want to set a long timeout for the chat room so people are alerted throughout the day even if there are long periods of idle time. Can I set this parameter globaly or do I have to set it for each client when installed?
PS: Thanks to all those forum members at Openfire who addressed issues re configuring Windows Server AD. With a few searches and a little tweaking I got Openfire working with AD in about an hour.
