Regarding OpenFire Chat server


Hi Friends,
In our office we are planning to implement an intranet chat server which supports about 500+ users. All are mostly ubuntu 9.10 systems. The chat server we are planning to install will also be ubuntu 9.10 based.

Tried Openfire chat server and Spark IM client. It works very well. But we have a concern how many users to a maximum this chat server will support. Will there be any issues in the future? Will there be anything we need to pay them if the number of users increase?

Expecting your valuable replies.

thanks

If you integrate openfire with ldap you would then be limited by your user base in ldap which should meet your need. There are no indications that the GPL license applies only to a limited number of users.

wolfperkins,
Thanks for replying. I am not getting your point regarding that ldap one. All the machines are independent ubuntu installations, but are networked.
Is it okay to implement openfire?

You would use openldap for the authentication of the users logging in through the pidgin client. The openfire setup program actually has an option you can use to point the openfire installation to either the internal database or ldap.
