How do I configure Openfire to work with Plugoo

So I have my openfire server, and its working great for inhouse users, and I can connect to it from outside the network with my account. I have all 5222 and 8080 forwareded to the server.

I’ve gone and created my account at plugoo with jabber, activated the account but I never received the confirmation IM. I then added the user "plugoobudy@plugoo.com" or what ever its suppoed to be in spart, and plugoo still shows that I’m offline.

Heres what I used to connect:

Account: Daniel@72.67.###.###

Do I need to do anything to OpenFire to allow external services to see if I’m online or not?

Thanks for your help.

and what is the puropse of plugoo? it seems to do the same thing as the gateway plugin for openfire server.

Its a web based client basically. If there is an alternative web client that I can look at, that would work too. I just want people to go to my website and be able to type a message to me and it pop up on my computer with out the user having to type in any special usernames or passwords, or have to install any extra software.

I am not sure how you would accomplish what you are trying to do with plugoo. you would need to know the name of the originating server to allow server to server connections.

The originating server is plugoo.com the username is plugoobudy. plugoobudy@plugoo.com is the user that I am supposed to be IM’d from. I’ll copy and past the email:

I tried setting up an account with them and it always said my status was offline. I configured my server to allow that domain but it still did not work. Without further help from them I do not think I will get this to work.
