ConnectionListener can't reconnect to OpenFire

Hi All,

System overview configuration:

  • OpenFire Server ver 3.7.1
  • Smack-3.2.1.jar & Smackx-3.2.1.jar
  • Smack Client establish 17 (#0-16) connections to OpenFire that are working properly.
  • each connection is set with: setReconnectionAllowed(true);

The Issue:

  1. Restarting OpenFire server (via “./openfire stop” then “./openfire start”)

  2. ConnectionListener is trying to reconnect to the server every 1 second for each 0-16# connections (via ConnectionListener.reconnectingIn() ):

@Override

public void reconnectingIn(int arg0) {

logger.warn("[{0}] trying to reconnect",xmppConnectionParams.getSource(connectionSeqNum));

}

  1. Only 0-2 of the 17 connections will managed to reconnect within 2 hours, the rest not.

  2. For every 10 reconnects tries, ConnectionListener.reconnectionFailed() will be called.

  • i’ve tried to add to this listener function, the conenction function (that are working properly on a running environment)

=> smack.Connection.disconnect() / smack.Connection.connect() - but it didn’t helped at all.

  1. Network traffic between the Smack and OpenFire server shows that OpenFire rejects all the reconnects tries and closes them:

Questions:

We noticed that this issue is getting resolved only when we are restating our client and then it managed to connect to OpenFire Server.

  • Can any one spread some light on this issue that we are having, and what are the required actions so that ConnectionListener.reconnectIn() will work.

Thanks Doron.

Here is the exception that the Smack client is catching:

public void reconnectionFailed(Exception arg0)

prints

Connection failed. No response from server.:

did you ever solve this problem?

Hi there,

Better late than never:

Could potentially be Openfire rejecting the login attmetp with the same resource name?

It is the login that fails or the connect?

Try checking the Openfire Server Settings -> Resource Policy and set the option Always kick
