I’m using Openfire as my jabber server on Server A. I’m having another account on an external Server B. Now I’m trying to connect from the account on Server B to the conference server on Server A. But this doesn’t work.
Connecting from Server B to a Server C like conference.igniterealtime.org works and connecting from a local account on Server A to the conference server on Server A also works fine. This means to me, that the problem is on side of Server A.
So, has anybody an idea why I can’t connect to my server with an external account? Could it be a firewall problem?
Thanks in advance.
(Hope the description above is clear enough)
It could be a firewall or certificate issue. Try to connet to server B from server A and take a look at your log files.
There is also Server To Server HowTo’s - it is old but it should still apply.
Thanks for the link to the HowTo.
- from an account of Server A I can add a user of Server B and communicate
- from an account of Server A I can connect to an external conference server
- I still can’t connect from an external server to the conference service of Server A
And somehow there are no logs available. Even no debug messages.
Do you have public DNS entries for conference.your-servername and your-servername?
I didn’t had for conference.my-servername. Now it works. Thanks for your help!
