Launch Admin

When I use the Launch Admin button, it defaults to 127.0.0.1 - where can I update that to the IP Openfire is actually using?

127.0.0.1 is th loopback adress of the NIC. It should be fine the way it is.

Yeah, I’m aware of that. But it doesn’t work as is…so I would like to change it, because I am lazy.

You will have to change the code and recompile your Openfire every time the IP changes or new version comes up. I think it’s easier just to have a bookmark in your browser, pointing to the desired IP or whatever.

yeah, the Favorite option seems about 12,000 times easier than recompiling openfire. I just didn’t know if there was a xml tag I could use along the lines of the tag. Or perhaps some database property. It would me nice - at least for me.

check this setting in /openfire/conf/openfire.xml:

Yeah…I have that set to the correct IP. But it doesn’t use that for the Launch Admin button. I also tried moving/copying that setting up under the entry…but no luck.

Launcher is a hardcoded application, so as i said before you can only change its code.
