Openfire Mettings not opening ports, not available over web


I am trying to set up Openfire Meetings on a Windows Server 2012 R2 machine. We have been using Openfire with Spark for text based messaging on this server for a few years now, without any problems at all. The Users are imported from Active Directory via LDAP. The Openfire Version installed is 4.1.1 (after a few updates), with the Meetings Plugin 0.3.28. The Database is running on a remote Microsoft SQL 2012.

So far I am able to place Video Calls over this Server using the Jitsi Desktop Client - so Openfire Meetings in general is working. But no matter what I am doing, I can’t open the Webinterface to create Rooms (https://your-server.com:7443/ofmeet). The connection can’t be established, indicating that the port hasn’t been opened. A check on the server via netstat confirms this, no application uses either 7443 or 7070 (7070 via http isn’t working either)

Any ideas on this? Are there any logfiles I could check? I already checked the all.log of Openfire, but couldn’t find any errors related to 7443/7070. The Log is attached, but I had to clean out a bit of sensitive information (replaced with ###something###).

I would really appreciate some help, it seems like either I’m missing something or I stumbled upon a bug.

OK, I am answering myself. I solved the problem, it was rather simple: When I installed the Server, I disabled HTTP Binding because we don’t use it. The Ports 7443 and 7070 are opened by the HTTP Binding feature. Disable it, and you disable the ofmeet web interface…

Good Morning.
I need to know what version of Ofmeet you are using for this new version of Openfire 4.1.1?

0.3.28, as written above.
