Might be the wrong arena for this question but I don;t want to double post. have been getting more and more SPIM from our MSN gateway. I am reading about PrivacyList and was wondering how this is used. I am reading the javadocs and I see the different items referenced, but the question is how exactly do you implement this feature to work?
And if implemented, will this continue to allow users to add and authorize new clients attempting to contact them properly.
I think that your best option is to disable incoming messages from users that aren’‘t in your roster. You will still be able to get presence subscription requests but not messages from users you don’'t know.
To learn more about privacy lists you can read the original specification: http://www.xmpp.org/specs/rfc3921.html#privacy.
Hope that helps.
Hi Gato, this is right what I need
but i don´t understand all the information in the link…
Can you explain to me how i can create de privacy list for disable incoming messages from users that aren’'t in the all roster of my wildfire users?
Thanks a lot…
Privacy lists are currently configured from the client side so you will need to use a client that supports privacy lists. Unfortunately, even though privacy lists belong to the XMPP standard they are not widely supported by clients. FYI, we added support to Smack (code still not in the SVN repository). The other client that supports privacy lists is TKabber. An idea that was discussed some time ago was the option to be able to define and control privacy lists from the server that will affect all users or group of users.
what happend with that??? some advanced? next version maybe???

that be great!!!
Is possible with packetreceptor disable incoming messages from users that aren’'t in my roster and the all my user´s roster in the wildfire???
Search in the forum but not look anything…
I’'m very interested in a server-side or at least central control of privacy lists.
My application is pretty different … I have logging instruments all over the world that I need to get data from. Each instrument is connected to a Siemens TC65 modem, which is an intelligent modem. On the TC65 we run some code that allows us to connect to the instruments with XMPP over GPRS. Thus there are about one or 2 people in the setup with lots of instruments.
The reason I’'m interested in the presence subscriptions/privacy lists … it costs me lots of money !!! Since the instruments are on GPRS we pay for traffic and you can imagine the amount of traffic generated by all the presence packets flying around …
I really need to be able to control the blocking from a central point. If there is anything I can do in terms of maybe writing a plug-in or whatever I’'m quite open to it … I just need to be pointed in the right direction.
I HAVE read all the information on blocking presence notifications in RFC3921 - I just need to know what I can do to be able to do this from a central point.
