Step 1: Installation and settings
Nothing complex here. Just install this component as usual and set up accordingly. Don't forget to read hints for fields in settings — they are very helpful.
Synchronous work with Joomla
Setup corresponding component's options (autoregister, autologin etc.), enable User - IPB Mirror plugin and set it up as well. Automatic registration fires, when user successfully logs into IPB Mirror, automatic login — when user successfully logs into IPB Mirror OR Joomla. Automatic logout happens, when user logs out of IPB Mirror OR Joomla. And password syncing occurs on any login, if user's email match on both ends and password match at least on one end. Passwords also synced, when user changes password in his Joomla profile. After each synchronization user gets a corresponding notification about it.
Be sure to check group IDs in component settings — they MUST match the ones from IP.Board or synchronization won't work properly.
