Strange java.net.UnknownHostException error

Hi,

I have installed openfire on a Debian etch with ldap and postgres.

I can login to the server from the web interface and I can use a client to login.

I add another user to my list but sometimes no autorization is requesed to other user.

Sometimes when I or other users login someone are online in a visible state but other are offline or not autorized.

In the error log I see a very strange error:

[org.jivesoftware.openfire.session.LocalOutgoingServerSession.cr eateOutgoingSession(LocalOutgoingServerSession.java:258)]

Error trying to connect to remote server: pietro(DNS lookup:

pietro:5269)

java.net.UnknownHostException: pietro

at java.net.PlainSocketImpl.connect(PlainSocketImpl.java:177)

at java.net.SocksSocketImpl.connect(SocksSocketImpl.java:366)

at java.net.Socket.connect(Socket.java:520)

But pietro is only my username, not my hostname.

There is the same error even with other account.

What is the problem?

Hi,

This problem is caused by Openfire inserting non-valid JIDs into your roster. Openfire then thinks these IDs are server names?

When you add a buddy, you need to use a valid JID: ex) pietro@myhostname.com
