First off, I am very new to Openfire/Spark and Redfire. My interest was triggered by a suggestion by a fellow ham radio enthusiast who suggested using Openfire as the basis for HSMM (High Speed Multimedia) operating. Basically this is communications via WiFi devices, generally using the amateur radio allocation of the 2.4 GHz band. Communications can be ad hoc point to point or via a mesh network. Netmeeting had been a commonly used application but that is no longer supported by MS and it only works with Windows machines.
I have installed Openfire on a home server and did all of the necessary port forwarding for friends to use it via the internet as it is normally intended. It works great with text chat, screen capture and file transfers. I also installed it on a couple of laptops w/o internet as point to point ad hoc and likewise it works well. I had never paid much attention to XMPP before but I’m beginning to appreciate it for a lot of reasons.
Where I am stuck - and others seem to be - is getting Redfire to work. I am testing using 2 Win XP machines. I am using the current versions of Spark and Openfire. I have upgraded my Flash to the latest. I placed the .war file in the Openfire plug in folder and it seems to have done its thing but it does not show in the plug in screen for Openfire.
On the Spark side I placed the .jar file in the plug in folder and the audio/video and screen share icons show in the Spark chat window. When I try a screen share I get the request to accept/reject the share but then when I accept I see a new screen with HTTP Error 404: Problem accessing /redfire/screen/screenviewer.html. Reason: Not Found
Is there an additional plug in or other application that I should be installing within Spark or elsewhere?
