As the subject says - Can the IM Gateway be run in a separate Openfire server? For various performance reasons we want to run an IM gateway plugin instance on a second machine. I’m fairly sure that it can be but I can’t work out how to do it.
Any help would be appreciated.
No, it can not. It needs direct access to internals of Openfire to perform most of it’s duties, and as a result needs to be running on the same instance of Openfire where your accounts and such are. If you need an externally running transport, take a look at some of the external implementations out there like PyMSNt, PyAIMt, etc.
Thanks for the reply jadestorm. Looks like we’re going to have to make do with one server until a new clustering solution comes along.
