Anonymous login

Hello,

i tried to login anonymous to wildfire. But during the bind process the server gives me no username. I get only a random ressource assigned. Here is my log:

any ideas whats going wrong?

Alex,

The way we handle anonymous logins is to give an address that’‘s the server name plus a random resource. That was basically copied from the behavior of other XMPP servers and we haven’‘t found any documentation for other behavior being more proper. Is there a reason you’'d expect a username?

Regards,

Matt

Also, one idea is that if we were to use usernames, it could be by using a subdomain:

abc123@anonymous.example.com

hi Matt,

yes are are not much docs yet. All i found is the following:

http://mail.jabber.org/pipermail/xmppwg/2005-March/002280.html

i just wondered because some clients and components seem to have problems with JID’'s in the format server/resource. I couldnt disco some components or join rooms on some MUC servers.

I assume they look for the node part, and if it doesnt exist they don’'t treat this as a user JID.

would be a interesting discussion for the standards mailing list.
