I have set up and installed Openfire on to one of my Windows Servers. (W-Server 2003) & I have created a MySQL database through MySQL Workbench to hold the installation of Openfire.
The installation was successful and I was able to easily configure Openfire through the administration panel.
However, this is the part which started to confuse me. I want to be able to configure Openfire so that users from other houses can connect to spark through my network. I have searched around the forums already for information on how to do this… However, I my users are still receiving this error “Cannot connect to server: invalid name or server not reachable”
Here are the steps I’ve preformed so far:
Configured my Windows Server domain (AD) to match the real world sub-domain. (connect.keolia.co.uk)
I forwarded the sub-domain to match the DNS IP of my server.
I enabled “Server to Server” and “Connection Manager” on Openfire.
I added 2 custom services to my router (Both port: 5222, 5269 and 5223
Finally, I opened up all 3 ports on the Firewall Rules area of my router.
At the minute my chat server will only connect internally and will not externally… would anyone be able to point me in the right direction in making my server publically accessable.
