Install problem, can send messages, can''t receive (error 504)

Okay, I’‘ve got a jabber server up and running, but I can’‘t seem to communicate with other jabber servers. I’'ve got ports 522, 5223, and 5269 open on my firewall and they work fine.

S2S is enabled on port 5269, my domain resolves, my ports are open. Both accounts seem valid, the one i setup on my own server allows me to send messages to myself. The other account is on

I don’'t have any certificate other than the one that came with wildfire. SSl is set to optional.

Can anyone suggest anything I’‘ve missed? Here is a sample from my debug logs, sorry they don’'t seem to format right.

Okay, this is a new development, I can send messages FROM my own server to my account i just set up on

but I cannot send messages back from my account to my account on my home server. I get error 504.

Anyone seen this??

The error 504 means that the server was not able to contact the requested remote server. So if you are sending a message from a account to an account in your Wildfire server then is reporting that he is not able to contact your server.

When I was testing s2s with I remember getting that error but the reason was that my Wildfire server was down so returned a 504 error. And even after starting Wildfire I was getting the 504 error. After waiting some time the cached error in was removed and when I tried again it worked fine. If your server was up and running all the time then I would recommend checking that your host and port 5269 is accessible from the internet.

Feel free to post the new debugged information so we can see what’'s going on.

I’'ve verified that my domain resolves correctly and that the port is indeed open.

I’'m using Gaim as the client for both the jabber server on my own machine and

Again, I can send from my own server TO, but not vice versa, i get error 504.

After about half an hour, it takes a minute to get a 504, so it seems it is trying again fresh.

Any settings I might have missed? I don’'t see anything happening in my logs.

I’'m also curious about getting file transfers and voice chat working between google talk, is there somewhere I can see the status of how thats working? It seems and users cannot do voice, and my initial try to send a file failed as well.

I’m seeing the same thing on my fresh install running non Debian 11. I can send messages from the new install, but incoming messages time out with 504. For now I have the firewall off so that is not the issue. Not sure what I did wrong.
