Server Bandwidth

I’'m new to Jabber/XMPP/Jingle…if you are running your own server with openfire, does file transfer with the client eat up server bandwidth…?

I want to clarify how the file interacts with the server…if it does at all.

Usually, no it doesn’'t. File transfers are a client -> client communication.

The exception is if you enable the file transfer proxy in which case, the server will proxy the file transfer when clients cannot directly communicate.


take a look here: http://www.igniterealtime.org/support/articles/filetransfer.jsp

Clients may of course use the servers bandwidth while transferring files, depending on their settings.
