Online / Offline Status not shown correctly

Hi there,

I’m using Openfire 3.5.2 and have some problems getting new remote-jabber contacts going. I can add them to my roster and get confirmation that I’m allowed to see their status yet nothing happens, they always appear as offline. I even tried upgrading to svn trunk but still no change.

Any hint where to start debugging? error.log doesn’t have an entry…

to add a note… when others add my id, they can see the status just fine…

Okay, I found out why that happened. Somehow the setting in “Server Settings -> Subscription Settings” changed from disabled to “Allow, Intercept all”. That sounds like a potentially dangerous thing IMHO and one should be warned there.

Switching back to “disabled”, deleting and re-adding the jabber contacts fixed it then.
