I run openfire over the internet. Lots of Firewall chnages to do that, but no issues at this time. Runs well. I have even been able to use a Jabber app for our Apple IPAD and IPHONE users - MONAL. I am having great difficulty with a jabber client for Android OS. We would like our employees to have a client on the smart phones so they can connect to the openfire server. So far with Android OS, no joy. I try all configurations with the jabber phone apps - in particular - XABBER. But I never get a connection. I find the settings confusing as well. When creating a client in openfire, you can make it whatever you wish…such jsmith…mjones But when I try to input that username in the android jabber client field for the username, it always rejects that and insist on the format of jsmith@whatever domain whch is not the created users name in the Openfire server. Also, I use port 5223 for obvious reasons.
Has anybody had any luck with using an Android App on their smartphone and connecting to openfire with their account?
As an update to this post I left…I have a found a nice program that works well with the Jabber client on the Android OS. It is called JABIRU. Here is the URL if anybody is interested.
