I’‘ve installed the latest openfire on a linux box (Red Hat). I trying to setup a private network. I was able to do the http://localhost:9090 the first time and configure everything with MySQL. However, when I try to log in once I setup my admin password, I’‘m unable to log in. An error message is displayed on the index.jsp page (I don’'t have the error message with me now since I left work but it had something to do with a file transfer proxy error message).
I bleieve I may have some problems due to how our network is setup:
We don’'t have a DNS server (the biggest problem from what I have read)
The linux machine has a static IP Address
Firewall has the port blocked since I don’'t want users to IM outside of our internal network.
Basically, we have a firewall and then switches and then computers. A very basic setup. We have about 60 users in our office. We use Microsoft Exchange for our mail.
Any advice on getting a private network setup would be very helpful. Thank you in advance.
