I’m really not sure if this is an appropriate forum to ask this in, if not I apologize.
We have OpenFire integrated with our LDAP (AD) directory and this is great, it’s one of the reasons we chose OpenFire. The problem is on the client side; we’re using Pidgin and from what I can see there isn’t a way to have it use the logged in user’s Windows credentials when authenticating against the OpenFire server. It’s a headache when our domain policy makes a user change their password and then their chat clients craps out on them.
Does anyone know of a decent (preferably open source) XMPP client that can use integrated windows authentication? So my users don’t need to update their account details when they change their Windows password?
