This patch allows you to configure the openfire admin console to listen on a different network interface than the rest of the server. This is useful for security (e.g. if you want administrative traffic on a non-public ip address) and also for bandwidth consumption (to keep the overhead of administrative traffic on a seperate interface on a multi-homed host).
With this patch, your openfire.xml can optionally have an element inside the element:
<jive> <adminConsole> <interface>127.0.0.1</interface> <!-- new config property --> <port>-1</port> <securePort>9091</securePort> </adminConsole> <!-- ... --> </jive>
If you don’t specify inside of , it will fall back to using the global <network.interface> property.
