I have put in Openfire as an installation for testing. Once I got over the installation with AD hurdle it was pretty much gravy, but I have some questions before I move this to a proper working enviroment.
1: When I dumped the AD into the local database, it gave me all the users. I’d rather just have it from two groups, let’s name them (Not the real names) TechOne and TechServ. The Domain is IMS.LOCAL and I know the IP and Name of the Controller.
2: This one is probably more spark related, but is there a way to log in by specifying the domain instead of the server? I’m already using SSO and that works out but I have to specifiy the server straight away.
3: Lastly, in the interest of standards compliance, does any installation of openfire phone out to the internet by default? If so, how can I disable this? We’re not using any sort of WAN or virtualization so that might make it easier.
Try to keep the answers dumb and thorough. I’m a programmer, not a system admin.
