Looking at Citadel as a possible replacement collab/talk/etc. server and eyeing its XMPP support…
“Now toggle over to the “Advanced” tab. Check the “Allow plaintext auth over unencrypted streams” box. The service will not work without this option set.”
(a) I sure hope this documentation is out of date but (b) maybe I'll just look somewhere else, too. Hmmmm. Darn it.
Yeah, a glance at modules/xmpp/xmpp_sasl_service.c shows it only has PLAIN, so if there's another auth method it's hiding somewhere not worth looking for.
(I must not have been awake when I wrote this, because of course the STARTTLS is actually the more important bit but I _think_ the documentation is right that it doesn't support that either so)
@dasyatidprime Phooey indeed.
