Looking for jabber client with shared roster support
Hello every1, i have recently set up an ejabberd installation for my company; so that it will become the standard internal im communications service. I even managed after some hair pulling to configure it to make the user authentication against our existing M$ Active Directory via its internal ldap service.

Now, while ejabberd is as far as i know the only jabber service that supports shared rosters out of the box, it is only available when its authentication is made internally and does *not* work when it is made any other way (my cas precisely).

So, now i am thinking of finding a client (for Windows, it is for all of my co-workers); does any one know of a piece of software that supports what i describe?

Thanks in advance.

Since I'm not sure about what you really want, did you try popular clients such as Gaim, PSI, etc. And I've heard about Pandion too.

Thanks for your reply. As a matter of fact i have experience using the clients that you mention (Gaim and Psi), but none of them supports sharing the contact list (or roster as the folks over at ejabberd call it).

I will try Pandion, from which i have never heard before and may just support what i need.
