I just completed an installation of OpenFire running on CentOS. I was looking at the logs and I noticed it is making frequent calls to other servers out on the internet specifically jabber.com and jabber.eu.
I realized this is related to the fact that “Server 2 Server” was enabled by default on installation. Since I don’t have any XMPP servers outside my organization that I want this server communicating or syncing with, is it safe to turn off this feature?
Keep in mind I am running the server with LDAP support so that my domain users can logon with their domain credentials and maintain a level of SSO.
Is “Server 2 Server” a requirement of LDAP Support? If not, why would this be turned on out of the box?
