I’ve been using OpenFire for some time and I’ve recently run into some trouble with connecting to GTalk. My OF was communicating with OF just fine but a few days ago, I restarted the server (trying to resolve unrelated s2s issue) and the server went sort-of haywire.
First, administration told me that my RSA keys are invalid and that I need to re-generate certificates, which I did through web administration (I am using self-signed certificates). Everything seems to work just fine, however my server stopped working with GTalk - other services work OK (jabber.cz, jabber.org, freenet.de, root.cz…).
I’ve Googled a lot and found some usual suspects, which I all checked:
- Setting “Optional” in Security Settings -> s2s
- Allowing accepting self-signed certificates
- Turning off the GTalk service on Google Apps for my domain.
In fact, these issues were all already dealt with prior to restart.
In order to deal with the problem, I’ve tried to add DNS SRV record for my domain (I didn’t have one before and it worked, so I didn’t bother), which looks like this:
_xmpp-server._tcp. 1800 IN SRV 5 0 5269
,but that didn’t help either.
While error log didn’t offer anything, debug log was a bit more verbose in this matter:
Please note, that domains and users were replaced with <> tokens (, and so on).
Thanks for any help with this problem in advance.
