Can't connect to openfire server

Hi hi every one !

i actually installed an openfire server, that’s why i’m here (nooo really ? )

is the first time i use one xmpp server.

so i checked how it works basically !

now i have some difficulties to connect my client to my server.

i have an external server with dns who target to this server.

**my dns configuration : **

Name TTL Type Value

**@ **5 min A my server’s ip address

xmpp 1 day A my server’s ip address

_xmpp-client._tcp 5 min SRV 0 5 5222 xmpp.mydomain.ext.

my openfire configuration :

XMPP Domain Name:

Java Version:
9-internal Oracle Corporation – OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM

Server Host Name (FQDN):

and basic configuration i still didn’t customize anything.

i tried to connect like that … username@mydomain.ext on the port 5222 or 5223.

but i think it can’t work on the port 5223 because not in my SRV right ?

Thank you for your help


UPDATE : i don’t really know where my problem is from …

I can join the server :

on the server i listen the port 5222

nc -l 5222

then i receive it from my client : <?xml version='1.0'?><stream:stream to=‘mydomain.ext’ xmlns=‘jabber:client’ xmlns:stream=‘http://etherx.jabber.org/streams’ version=‘1.0’>

but if i don’t listen on the server, i can’t connect to the port, like is blocked, and now of course my client doesn’t connect to the server.

thank for your help
