Need help with client login on fresh install


just finished the setup of the lates openfire on a debian. being logged in as the admin, i created two rooms, one user etc.

but the user cant login…

the server is available on the local LAN.

what else besides providing the username & servername do i need to get the user online?


What client do you use? Also is servername resolvable in the LAN? I mean, does you computer, that you are trying to login, knows what IP is behind that servername? If you don’t have local DNS server, then you may edit hosts file on your computer and bind server’s IP to a servername. Or you can use IP address of the server instead of servername hwn you are logging in.
