How can I link two separate Messenger systems?

From what I have read, the only way to message users from other Messenger systems is to use the Pidgin client which would require a second logon to the other Messenger system.
Can Messenger systems from two separate Groupwise systems be linked at the server level?

Hi Gordon,

As far as I'm aware it is not possible to link two separate messenger systems.

Cheers,

I thought so, but what about if the two currently separate eDir trees and Groupwise systems, had the Groupwise systems 'glued' together by a common domain. Would a single Messenger system then be able to service both sets of PO users?

Hi,

Messenger uses an LDAP source, such as eDir, for authentication and you can only point it to one source. The actual Messenger install has nothing to do with your GroupWise system.

Hi,

Here's the link to all the documentation: https://www.novell.com/documentation/novell_messenger22/

The installation guide (page 16, I think) explains the authentication requirements.
