We are connecting to openfire using flash and the Xiff library.
After a while, openfire stops responding to Xiff and the crossdomain.xml isn’t returned – breaking all new connectivity.
We’ve tracked it down to openfire not responding to any calls on that port. It does respond on port 5222 normally, and non-flash clients connect fine and continue to work.
We don’t see any errors in the logs, so there isn’t anything obvious going wrong.
A restart of openfire re-enables the port for response and continues normally, but that isn’t really desirable. It is a reliability issue.
Has anyone else seen this?
Is there a workaround that causes this to start responding again?
Aside from restarting openfire, is there a way to restart this service?
Any ideas would be appreciated.
