What am I missing? Spark can't connect to openfire even on localhost

So I successfully installed openfire to use LDAP. It shows user accounts and groups perfectly. I was unable to get pidgen to connect from a remote machine so I then tried spark. No love. I installed spark to the same machine for testing and still can not get it to authenticate. All settings are right out of the box and there is no firewall running. When I type in the AD Username and Password and connect to 127.0.0.1, IP Address or FQDN, I get the same “Can’t connect to server: Invalid name or server not reachable” error. What am I missing???

So, netstat -an |find /i “listening” brings back

TCP 0.0.0.0:135 0.0.0.0:0 LISTENING

TCP 0.0.0.0:445 0.0.0.0:0 LISTENING

And although port 5222 and 5223 are set as teh Client Ports under Server Settings/Client Connections I don’t see those ports open. Any idea as to why?

Oh, never mind. One last restart AFTER establishing LDAP connectivity of the service and those ports started listening just fine. Strange that that is what the fix was but nonetheless, it is working now.
