Cannot access openfire component


I am connecting to an openfire component when I run the server on the local host. However, when a client connected to a remote server is attempting to access the openfire component, it cannot find the openfire services of our server. Are there options to deny access to outside connections?



Hey Omar,

If the remote server is not Openfire then you will have to create a DNS SRV record for each service hosted in your server. The XMPP specification requires you to do that. Even you are using Openfire you may want to do it so other servers can always find your local services. Last comment, enable the debug log in your server to monitor the connection process.

Can you please explain more how would this work… so you have to run your own DNS server to do that? Do you have an idea how this would be done on a windows XP platform?
