I’m trying to get Openfire up and running on a dual-stack XP SP2 box. IPv6 is up and running with no firewall (currently streaming live video via ipv6). I installed OpenFire 3.4 and used a fairly default config (setup to listen on all addresses).
After starting the server I tried to connect using Spark to the IPv6 address with no luck.
netstat -an showed that several of the services were listening on , however there was no jabber server listening on port 5222 for IPv6, only for IPv4. I changed the config file to specify the IPv6 address in the network statement and re-started the server. I now get this error message when starting up:
Error starting XMPP listener on port 5222: Address family not supported by protocol family: bind
Error starting SSL XMPP listener on port 5223: Address family not supported by protocol family: bind
I thought OpenFire had full support for IPv6 - what am I doing wrong, or what else should I try to troubleshoot further?
