We have been using openfire & spark for over 1 year now and it really suits our needs, so BIG THANK you to everyone for making this possible.
Since we have 2 offices which are connected with a VPN I wanted to set a server on each location so that when the WAN goes down, the users of each office still can use spark.
The servers are running and I have configured the server to server setting so that seems to be ok.
There is 1 thing that puzzles me: how to set up users/groups so that each office has 1 group with local users and 1 group with remote users?
This is what I’ve done on each server:
- created a local and remote group
- created local users and put them in the local group
- added the remote users in the form of user@server to the remote group
- shared all groups with eachother, so on server 1: local group shared with remote group and vice versa
The subscription plugin is installed and configured to accept all requests.
Is this the right way to setup users/groups with multiple servers?
There seems to be an inconsistency in whether users/groups are presented which before with only 1 server was ok and when I change the sharing settings, it happens regularly that the browser keeps connecting so I wonder if there is an issue?
Thanks for reading.
EDIT: forgot to mention configuration, don’t know if this is important.
