Jabber "Message delivery error (Code 403)" when accessing chat room

I’'ve installed Wildfire 2.6.2 for a school classroom on a Fedora FC4 server using an RPM, and the installation went through without a problem. I am using the Gaim 1.5.0 client to connect, and I am able to chat one-on-one with other users, and they can receive messages sent from the Admin console. Users can also connect to a chat room that was created, but they receive the following error when they try and post anything to the chat room:

Jabber Message Error[/b]

Message delivery to chatroom@myinternaldomain.org

failed: (Code 403)

I thought the issue might be due to a file permissions error, so I chmoded everything to 777 for testing purposes. No change.

I set the debugging options in Wildfire but haven’'t seen anything logged at the specific time when the error occurred.

Is there a step I might be missing?

I’‘m fairly new to Wildfire, so any help would be greatly appriciated. If I have left out any helpful information I’'ll be glad to provide it.

your MUC / conference service should be chatroom@conference.myinternaldomain.org (see /muc-server-props-edit-form.jsp for the name if you like to change it to chat.myinternaldomain.org)


I neglected to list the “conference” portion at the beginning of the domain name in my initial post. I took your suggestion to verify that it was there, and it was.

One thing I isolated further; the room Admin is able to post to the room without problem but not the other users.

Any other ideas of what could be the problem?

did you configure the room?

Did you make it moderated or something like this?

Did you create it using gaim or the Wifi web admin console?


I made some further discoveries. The problem seemed to disappear when I removed the “moderated” option. Also, admin doesn’'t seem to have problems with anything, while end-users do.
