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???
