how to get IM+ on the iphone to work with an Openfire server?

We just implemented Spark and Openfire for our company's IM solution. Now we want people with smart phones to be able to use it too. We chose IM+ because it's free, and it supports iphone + blackberry.

We've tried it on our phones with all the settings entered but it doesn't seem to connect. do we need to make changes on the server side for this to work? Please advice. Thanks.

xmpp.domain = domain.com

To rename you'll have to re-run the setup tool: (might be easier to reinstall)

    First go to the Admin Console > Server > Server Properties
    Find the Property Name: admin.authorizedJIDs
    You'll see a list of users of the form user@server.domain.com. Edit the value so it has the same admin users as before but also ensure that the user admin@domain.com is also present or you won't be able to logon to your server after renaming it.
    Stop Openfire.
    Edit conf/openfire.xml in your Openfire installation folder and set <setup>true</setup> to <setup>false</setup>.
    Start the server and navigate to http://server:9090 to rerun the setup. Ensure the new Server Name matches the domain name eg. example.com
    Make sure Server Name is domain.com and NOT server.domain.com
    Once the server is running go to the Admin Console > Server > Server Settings > Server Certificates
    Delete any certificates belonging to the old domain.
    If no certificates now exist regenerate them.

 

If you added your admin to the admin list successfully you should be able to logon. If not you can reset it manually in the database. An example for MySQL:

        mysql -h localhost -u root -p PASSWORD gtms

        REPLACE ofProperty VALUES('admin.authorizedJIDs','admin@example.com');

IM+ Doesnt have full native XMPP support. The best alternative for iphone is oneteam

I've seen people got their IM+ working with Openfire. IM+ is free but oneteam is like $5 per download. We don't really need something fancy, as long as we can send messages that's all it matters. thanks.

Try checkin if monal does work to see if the error is related to EM+ or server sided settings.

Monal doesn't work neither. it says connection error. maybe i'm missing something here.
here are the settings:

Jabber ID: ID@CompanyName.com
Password: password
Enabled: On
Server: ServerName.CompanyName.com
Port: 5222
Resource: Monal
Use SSL: On

Have you tried connecting to the server via LAN? Could be a firewall issue check if ports 5222, 5223, 5269, and 8010 are forwarded.

i've installed IM+ desktop version on my laptop which is on the same subnet as the Openfire server. when i enter myID@CompanyName.com i get "Connection Failed". When i enter myID, i get "Authorization failed, please check your username/password".

Have you tried logging in without SSL? (PLAIN)

Your server seems to be setup correctly.

Are you planning to use SSL, and did you set up the server to use SSL?
http://www.igniterealtime.org/builds/openfire/docs/latest/documentation/ssl-guide.html

Are you using LDAP or the openfire account system?

schang626Author Commented:
Yes i tried logging in without SSL but i got the same error message.

I can use spark to login no problem so i dont think it has something to do with SSL.

i checked the server settings and the xmpp.domain = the server name. should i change it to CompanyName.com?
