I am an independent contractor and have been tasked with using Spark 2.5.8 in conjunction with a corporate server running Wildfire (I believe). I enter my access name and password, the server name, and get the error noted in the title above. Port is 5222. The IT guy is baffled, but I believe this system is new to him. Any suggestions as to what I can try to do locally to get a connection? If this is not my problem (and I don’t think it is because I use xmpp protocols with no problem, ie, Trillian and AIM, Google Talk, etc.), any suggestions I can pass along to IT?
I am running a NAT router, if that helps. Should I look into port forwarding? Windows XP. I haven’t changed anything under the Advanced tab. Any other info I can give, just let me know. I appreciate any replies in advance. Thank you!
