I have used Effusia business messenger in the past. Simple to use, add user name and pass, add to group and bam works great.
All that aside we are now trying to use openfire and spark, I am finding it tough to manage the clients.
1. I had to set it up with AD access ( not happy about that ) I wanted to just add user name and pass and be done.
2. I have assigned users to groups ( most people do not show up in the groups ). When I log in as the new user I do have the group I am assigned to and when I manually add the group it is empty
3. message archive is a must.
How can I configure the server not using AD. I want to add users, add groups and manage both without Active directory involvement.
I have it setup with AD currently buy am about to rip the whole thing out and look for something else..... PLEASE HELP.
