  1. Later I tried with Chromo less browser not able to connect with Open XMPP Server

  2. Finally I tried with IE and its working fine and able to connect with Openfire XMPP Server.

I used the same example with other XMPP Server its working fine in fire fox / chrome less browser.

This is happening against with Open fire XMPP Server only.

Does anyone face the same problem with firefox / chromo less browsers for Openfire?


Were you ever able to find a solution to your problem?

Not yet. As of now I am using IE. Please let me know if you have any updates.


I was able to solve the problem by editting my httpd.conf file in my apache folder.

I started by uncommenting the necessary proxy modules and adding this to the bottom of the file:

ProxyRequests Off

ProxyPass /http-bind/

ProxyPassReverse /http-bind/

I then changed my connection statement to:

connection = new Strophe.Connection(’/http-bind’/);

The issue is caused by Firefox and Chrome blocking the request for reasons I do not fully understand yet.
