Unable to connect to openfire with spark, so starting here

I am not able to connect to my openfire server (which seems to be installed and working on Debian Etch. I can get to the admin console and add plugins (all the fun stuff) and create users with ease. But when I try to access the openfire account through spark I get “unknown username or password” which I have created and recreated several times. Anyway, I start going through the logs and figured I would start with the obvious error logs. Problem is I have know idea what they mean. So, here they are:

It seems like everything should be working. The install was error free and super simple. I know not how to fix the issue I have only because I don’'t know what the error logs are telling me.

Any help would be great…

Hey SoOreBeer,

The java.net.BindException: Address already in use error means that the server failed to listen on the given port since some other process is using the same port. I would recommend to stop the server and check that the 5222, 5223, 5269, 9090 and 9091 ports are not being used by some other process.

It is possible that you are running 2 Openfire servers in the same machine or may be you left some other XMPP server in that machine before using Openfire. Anyway, kill the process that is using those ports and then start Openfire. Make sure that that error is no longer in the error logs.

Thanks for the reply!

Well, at this point everything seems to be working fine! The issue (from what I could tell) was the server name. I changed the name to jabber.ourserver.org and bounced the server. Pointed users to that server name and presto! All the ports work and it just works great! We also ran into another problem where the IM gateway was not working. But after several runs at it we figured out it was the firewall not allowing our server access through port 443.

We are currently using the software and all seems well! What a great product you have!
