Hi,

on Fedora process is very simple - just unpack openfire to some folder (/opt/openfire for example), run “openfire start”

and then connect to this host from web browser on port 9090 (http://host:9090).

Oh, some dependancy - first download and install last release of Sun JDK or JRE from java.sun.com

BR,

Tim

Hi Julian, welcome to IgniteRealtime community B-).

I found out that Openfire installation is a breeze in RHEL and Fedora using RPM package: openfire-3.4.1-1.i386.rpm. The JRE is included in the package. To install, just run:

sh# rpm -Uvh openfire-3.4.1-1.i386.rpm

To run Openfire:

sh# service openfire start

Can you give me the next step to do. Thanks a lot.

Hi,

Thank you for your response, it really works. However, i can’t access the server if i’m using spark windows client.

It’s likely that there’s a firewall blocking client access to port 5222. Can you verify that the port is not blocked by running:

sh# service iptables status

One of the lines should show something like:

14 ACCEPT tcp – 0.0.0.0/0 0.0.0.0/0 state NEW tcp dpt:5222

If that is not the case, then you would want to edit /etc/sysconfig/iptables and include a line that allows access to port 5222. After saving it, run:

sh# service iptables restart

Then try to connect once again.

BTW, can you also verify that Openfire is listening to port 5222? Run this as root:

sh# lsof -i :5222

You should get something like:

COMMAND PID USER FD TYPE DEVICE SIZE NODE NAME

java 24381 daemon 124u IPv6 89927 TCP *:xmpp-client (LISTEN)

Hi Aznidin,

It’s a helpful tips. Thanks for that. However, my linux redhat enterprise server is hosted, i can’t issue a commands like rpm and yum. Can you give some links or step by step procedure on how to install openfire in a hosted server.

Thanks,
