SSO against AD on OpenFire and Spark IM


I have installed OpenFire 3.6.4 and Spark Client 2.5.8 on my Windows XP Professional Desktop. OpenFire server is configured for the AD settings and is working fine. When I launch Sprk client and enter AD username/password, it is logging me in, but I am not able to use the SSO option which is available in the Spark client. Whenever I try with SSO option I am getting an error “Unable to connect using SSO. Please check your principal and server settings.”. My openfire.xml has only basic entries and doesnt have any sasl tag. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance

There are numerous documents in these forums that tell steps to attempt to get this to work. Here is mine: http://www.igniterealtime.org/community/docs/DOC-1616

Thanks Todd for the quick reply. I will go through the steps as you mentioned.

Todd, nice article. Is SSO with AD possible if Openfire is running on Linux and not joined to the domain?

That should be possible. ther are other articles in the community dealing with NIX SSO procedures.
