I have Openfire 3.6.3 set up and configured on our server, with AD authentication. It went through the install without any problems, found all the accounts.
I can log in to the admin control panel with my AD username/password. However, when I run Spark and point Spark to the servers IP address, it sits on “Authenticating” for a minute or so before erroring out with invalid username/password. I can’t find anything in the OpenFire log to even indicate the connection attempt was made. I installed Spark on the server itself and tried connecting through localhost but still won’t connect.
