Have you restarted Openfire yet? When you are attempting to login, does anything show up in the Openfire Admin under Client Sessions?
I'm having this same problem. The user shows up as logged in according to the admin console, but the user only sees the "please wait" wheel in the middle of their browser window.
Also, the system shows the user logged in unsecured, even though I am coming across through https.
I am having the same issue.
This is on Openfire 3.3.2 using the sparkweb from the plugin menu.
The openfire is connected to active directory.
Tried firefox & IE6 on windows.
The username I tried to use for login on sparkweb is not register with another client.
Anyone having a suggestion on this ?
