inbuilt XMPP support in Zimbra
I am using zimbra 8.0.6 on ubuntu server 12.04.3
I want to use zimbra mail server to connect from xmpp clients like pidgin etc.. So that users can login using the email id created on Zimbra Mail Server and IM each other.
On zimbra wiki there is a page saying that zimbra has inbuilt xmpp server in it. Pidgin and Zimbra - Zimbra :: Wiki.
But when i checked the port 5222 on my zimbra server it is closed and also i am not able to login on pidgin using zimbra email id.
Shall i use other xmpp server's like openfire with zimbra to be able to use xmpp clients using my zimbra email id's.
