In the logs of an IM client, I can see that one of streamhosts uses an IPv6 address and hostname that begins with
proxy. My confusion is due to IPv6 being completely disabled on that host and its name
proxy not being set up by me anywhere in OpenFire server or on DNS.
(10:49:38) jabber: Sending (ssl) (memberA@somewhere.com/af3Wdw3): <iq type='set' id='purple3b3a48c1' to='memberB@somewhere.com/1snpiaqj2n'><query xmlns='http://jabber.org/protocol/bytestreams' sid='purple3b3a48c0'><streamhost jid='memberA@somewhere.com/af3Wdw3' host='xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx' port='8010'/><streamhost jid='memberA@somewhere.com/af3Wdw3' host='yyy.yyy.yyy.yyy' port='8010'/><streamhost jid='proxy.somewhere.com' host='fe80:0:0:0:0:5efe:c0a8:3801%net6' port='7777'/></query></iq>
I was told that it is OpenFire server that informs the IM client that it can be found at
proxy.somewhere.com and at the corresponding IPv6 address. Why does it do it, and how can I turn both off?
proxy cannot be changed, do I need to create an A DNS record for
proxy? I am reluctant because we may have to use this name for a real SOCKS proxy very soon. I’d rather OF server identify itself under a different name.
Thank you for your help!
