XMPP client with integrated Windows Authentication?

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?



Spark supports SSO.

Pandion supports IWA.

Neither of these will work unless you manually configure Openfire to support them. Configuring LDAP in Openfire does not enable SSO.

See http://www.igniterealtime.org/community/docs/DOC-1060

SSO is difficult at best to configure. Each config of AD is different so there is no one right way to do it. This is the steps it took me to get it to work with spark: http://www.igniterealtime.org/community/docs/DOC-1616

I work fine with Spark, But i need to configure Pandion. It use less memory than spark. Anybody can help me? i had installed the 7.2 version of Norman Rasmussen plugin but ithink i have something bad. The pandion dont function.

Many thanks
