I have installed openfire on a redhat server. I used the ‘basic’ method of installing - no external database & no LDAP.
I currently cannot connect my spark client (from another machine) to the openfire server. I also cannot get to the admin console from another pc. However, I am able to log in with spark on the server using localhost as server and admin console using 127.0.0.1:9090.
Here are a few questions that may help troubleshoot:
Should the **Server Name **be the same as the server’s Host Name?
Does it matter that the server and clients are on different subnets? i.e. server: xxx.xxx.xx.xx **client: **xxx.xxx.yy.yy
On the spark client, under Server should I type the Server Name or Host Name (if they are different)?
For what it’s worth, I’ve tried:
different combinations in the **server **field
manually pointed the client to the server’s IP Address.
checked, and verified that ports are open on server
changed the **server name **field on openfire from servername.domain.com to servername
