    Default Using ejabberd as messaging service with zimbra.

    I've migrating my friends office from exchange to zimbra with this famous instruction:

    Then I just realize exchange's members can send instant message each other using msn messenger.

    I got a clue using jabberd 2.0 to achieve that:
    LDAP Jabber - ZimbraWiki

    But i'm using debian etch as server which only provide jabberd 1.4.3-3.3, no auth ldap support.

    So I try using ejabberd:
    LDAP auth failed | ejabberd

    And this is the configuration that works with the famous instruction :-D :
    % For LDAP authentication use these lines instead of above one:
    {auth_method, ldap}.
    {ldap_servers, [""]}. % List of LDAP servers
    {ldap_uidattr, "uid"}. % LDAP attribute that holds user ID
    {ldap_base, "ou=people,dc=gregzimbra1,dc=zimbra,dc=com"}. % Search base of LDAP directory
    {ldap_rootdn, "uid=zimbra,cn=admins,cn=zimbra"}. % LDAP manager
    {ldap_password, "test123"}. % Password to LDAP manager
    I'm using gaim/pidgin as client:
    Screen name: risiyanto

    activate "Allow plaintext auth",
    connect port: 5222,
    connect server:

    And now, zimbra's members can send instant message each other.

    Hope this help when your client asking for instant messaging service with zimbra.

    instruction above is free translation from:
