I used DigitalOcean to rent a linux server and successfully installed OpenFire on it. The server seems to be running as I can access the administrative panel with no problems. and when I use linux command “service openfire status” it shows that it’s running for 48 hours.
Neither Spark or Pidgin is able to connect to the server. I own a domain through GoDaddy.com
I feel like my DNS settings might not be correct.
I added a total of 4 DNS records in hopes of fixing my issue. Here they are as I inputted it.
For the domain/hostname in openfire, I inputted xmpp.domain.com
I was wondering if someone might have an idea of what I’m doing wrong.
