OpenFire 4.2.3 on Windows Server 2012 R2. Installed successfully except for the “OpenFire requires the following DNS entries” message, made those entries, that message went away.
Installed Spark on the Windows Server 2012 R2 itself where OpenFire is installed and a Windows 7 Pro (x64) machine.
Only the Windows Server Spark client will connect. The Windows 7 machine will not.
Both computers are on the same Windows domain and using the DNS server.
I have been restarting both machines repeatedly, no joy.
I have reloaded the DNS cache on both machines, no joy.
I have spent much time trying to confirm that my DNS settings are correct (and they seem to be), but my question is: why would the server where OpenFire is installed have a working chat client but the other machines won’t? I am no longer getting that OpenFire DNS alert, so does that mean my DNS entries are correct? Does the Spark program on the OpenFire server even touch the DNS settings when it is trying to access the server?
I put in the host name in the Spark connection “Advanced” options and have selected the “Accept all certificates” box on both clients.
The firewalls on both machines are off. Symantec Endpoint Protection is installed.
The Win 7 machine CAN ping the OpenFire Windows server BY the FQDN AND by IP.
The two machines are on the same subnet.
Any thoughts would be appreciated. I have been tearing out my hair on this.
