Spark Client not Connecting to Server

I have recently setup a new Openfire (4.1.4) server on CentOS 7 server box. As far as I can see we have installed everything correctly and I have been able to connect a Pidgin client, located on the same server, to the Openfire service. When I try to connect my Spark client (I was using 2.6.3 now updated to 2.8.3) it won’t connect. I have tried connect both through DNS and with the IP address. We have added “Spark” and “Spark.buckeyehq.com” into our DNS server and I am able to ping the Openfire server. I can also access the Openfire console from my desktop just fine. (It is connected to our Active Directory).

Below are the error logs. Any help would be appreciated and thank you in advance.

What is your Openfire server’s XMPP Domain value?

spark.buckeyehq.com

So, you should only try spark.buckeyehq.com as Domain in Spark. These looks like only warning that it can’t find an SRV record for this domain, but this is not absolutely required. There might be more in other logs. What error does Spark give when you try to login to spark.buckeyehq.com? have you tried enabling “Accept all certificates” in the Advanced menu in Spark? If nothing works, you can also try a workaround by additionally putting IP of the server into host field in Advanced menu.

I do have the “Accept All Certificates” checked. I tried using “spark.buckeyehq.com” in the Domain field of Spark. I also tried the IP address in the Host field.

The error I get for both is “Unknown connection errror. Please review the logs for more information.”

Well, i don’t know what is happening. Either it can’t resolve this name for some reason. Or this is some networking/firewall issue as connection to IP address times out.

Thank you for your responses. I wanted to let you know I figured out it was the firewall. I thought I had configured it properly, but upon disabling and then stopping it all together. I was able to connect a Spark client without issues.

thanks again for you help.

David, I have a quick question. We are trying to automate the sending of messages from Pidgin (from a Skype account running with Pidgin) to Openfire, but having difficulty. I’m told that there is something about the coding between Skype and Pidgin that does not allow the messages to be moved from Pidgin to Openfire. I am totally out of my depth here as I am not a developer.
