Openfire as service on win7


I’m new to this forum and my interest in openfire are linked to distributed 3D ( web3d.org ) spaces using xmpp to share states between X3D-sceens in browsers.
Will use BOSH as it can use https from jscript in the browsers X3D-sceens to transfere states by push techniqe.

Used ejabberd before but openfire seems easier to manage.
My Q. as I’m running Openfire on Windows 7 I would like to setup openfire application as a service.
Any tips / experience / or your std way, are highly appreciated.

PS: setting up 2 Openfire servers one inside a strict firewall and one more public.
This arrangement are for security reason as the inside firewall server will be controlling a driversimulator.

Service installation and general advice for running on Windows is described in Ignite Realtime: Openfire Server (specifically in Openfire: Installation Guide )

Ops: I’m blushing
Should have read the installtion guide — again.
Works perfelct with cmd:

  • openfire-service /install – installs the service. +
  • openfire-service /start – starts the service
    Many thanks.
