due to my limited knowledge in configuration of hardware, i had problem in understanding on how to allow 2 servers to communicate with each other based on the article that was posted in http://wiki.igniterealtime.org/display/WILDFIRE/Server+to+Server+HowTo.
for my environment, i am simulating with 2 laptops with wildfire installed in each of them.
the laptop is able to ping to one another successfully.
so far i had tested using the sparks program installed in laptop A to login as a user of server B
to the wildfire that resides in laptop B.
and it succeed.
however, how do i go about letting user A from server A to add user Z from server B?
what are the steps that i need to carry out to check if server A is communicating with server B?
do i use telnet? if so, how i do it and what response shld i get?
i had tried telnet (in cmd window, type
but it always return something like <stream.
is it rite to receive this?
as for the article found in the above url,
it says ''The server name of the openfire (Server/Server Manager/Server Settings) has to be a name, that can be resolved by DNS (e.g. homebase.dyndns.org)". what does this mean? can i just register the server name to be the same as my machine name?
sorry for chunking all qns together.
