Setting up multiple Openfire Servers

I am trying to daisy-chain embedded openfire servers at each of our offices, and allow them to freely communicate and share eachothers user listing. Is this possible? Any help would be appreciated.

YOu could try connection managers for this.

Hi,

do you have a good reason for daisy-chaining instead or relying on standard s2s connections?

My main reason is because we have two fully set up openfire servers running independently at multiple locations, and I would like to save some work and just connect them together, but I don’t know if this is possible. Any help would be great

Hi,

as this is not possible you may use conection managers, so all users share the same xmpp.domain. But as a CM is simply a proxy all traffic will be routed to your Openfire server.

You can not use a cluster unless you have a gigabit connection between your servers, that’s likely not the case.

Using standard s2s seems the most easy thing to setup, anyhow every server needs to have a unique xmpp.domain (like fr.example.com, br.example.com, …).
