Today the Openfire Team announced the open sourcing of the Client Control module for Openfire. This module promises it "allows to specify which XMPP clients are allowed to connect to the server".
In this guide I will give you instructions about how you can bypass this restriction and always use Coccinella. Don't be afraid that this tutorial will be too difficult for you! Thanks to Coccinella's flexible branding features, even a child can do this. No, you don't have to recompile Coccinella or apply some difficult hacks. It's only a matter of adding 1 small line to Coccinella's preferences file and then restarting Coccinella! Read further to see how easy it is to bypass OpenFire's Client Control module.
