Client-Server unable to communicate

Just setup the latest version of Wildfire. The server is up and running, bound to a specific IP via the conf. I can access the control panel via that ip and the dns.

Problem comes when trying to get spark to communicate with the server. Spark just loads endlessly when signing up for a new account. I get username/password invalid when trying to sign into an account I created via the web interface.

I get the following output in the error log.

  1. Begin error.log ###

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

It looks like something is already bound to the ports the server wants to use. Here’'s what you do:

  1. Stop Wildfire

  2. See what processes are listening to port 5222 and 5223.

On linux, do this to find out:

netstat -tnlp[/code]

On windows, go download TCPView from
