I am wondering if anyone can offer clues as to how I can connect the Zimbra IM webclient to my existing and separate Openfire 3.5 server. I would like to not use the XMPP server (Wildfire) that is internal to Zimbra as it is about 5 revs behind the latest Openfire, and I use plugins to connect my Asterisk phone system to Openfire. As I see it there might be two ways that this could be accomplished:
1. Find the settings for the web client that connects to Zimbra's local XMPP server and change it to connect to and log into Openfire. I haven't been able to find this so far, though I have searched quite a bit. If this is embedded in the java code (as opposed to in a config file or LDAP), I would probably never fine it (jar files give me a headache).
2. Configure a Server to Server connection. Since the normal Wildfire admin interface is disabled, I figured to try to do this by directly adding the info to the mysql table jiveRemoteServerConfig. But that didn't work for me. There must be another setting that I am missing (maybe in another table) to enable this function.
If anyone has clues to either of these, please post it. I would love to try this out. I assume that more refined admin of the IM server and client will be added in future versions of ZCS, but I wouldn't mind trying this now if possible.
