I am also having a somewhat related problem to the one above: I have installed the Openfire server on an Amazon EC2 server, and connot log into an existing account using a domain name I have.
Here is ** **what is working for me :
- Created an EC2 server with Public DNS : ec2-23-23-186-131.compute-1.amazonaws.com
- Setup the server name to be the above Public DNS.
- Setup the Group Policy of this server appropriately , opening XMPP ports etc.
- Installed Openfire server.
- Created an Openfire acount with name ‘gamersweb_qa1’ password ‘qa1’ on the Openfire server.
- I can successfully log to this account with Pandion with account name : gamersweb_qa1 @ec2-23-23-186-131.compute-1.amazonaws.com [password: qa1]
Here is what is not working for me :
I am trying to make use of the domain name I purchased : “2hermes.com” instead of the above long Amazon server name.
I did the following:
- Created an Elastic IP 220.127.116.11 on Amazon EC2 and associated it with this server.
- Pointed the A records of *.2hermes.com and @2hermes.com to the IP address above.
- Renamed the Openfire server name to “2hermes.com”
- Recreated the Openfire server certificates
- Restarted the Openfire server
- Trying to connect with Pandion to ‘email@example.com’ … this fails
I am suspicios of my step # 2 above … although going to www.2hermes.com:8080 works as expected. It reaches my Java server on this server / virtual machine [and then gets redirected, not to be confused].
I have reverted the server settings to “ec2-23-23-186-131.compute-1.amazonaws.com” so at this point @2hermes.com accounts shouldn’t be expected to work from Pandion.
I would most appreciate if anybody has an idea what I may have missed in the above settings and let me know … thank you,
