Spark proxy problem

Hi, I’'ve just tried Spark to connect to an external jabber server (jabber.ru, for example), and have problems with getting through our corporate proxy server.

Here (http://www.igniterealtime.org/forum/thread.jspa?messageID=149780&#149780) I found the following: "Spark does not use a proxy server for the XMPP connection, it is only used to download plugins and some minor other things. ".

Is that true, and if yes, what’'s the solution?

If that is true about the proxy settings for spark, you may have an issue. Most properly configured networks that use a proxy configure all network traffic to go through them.

yeah, but I can’'t believe that such an issue passed unnoticed before…

Have you tried to telnet to the port or run a port scan of the address. Your company could be blocking XMPP transports. My previous company blocked all IM traffic except our own internal server.

I think there’'s no need to do that, because Psi works through proxy normally.

anyway thanks

Well that then verifies that the proxy settings of spark do not work for the XMPP connection. Your PSI connection proves that proxy authentication is needed for your network to allow the transport and that Spark does not do it.

but that looks to be completely senseless, and that’‘s why I’'m asking here.

If such a simple thing doesn’'t work, it might have been done intentionally.
