What domain name do I use?

Here’s what I have.

  1. Ubuntu Hardy Heron (server)
  2. Ubuntu workstation
  3. Pidgin as the Jabber client
  4. MySQL for the database
  5. OpenFire Installs fine

Here’s the problem.

  1. Client can’t connect and create an account
  2. 400 Bad Request error

Here’s what the log says.

2008.10.01 16:29:08 User tried to authenticate with this server using an unknown receipient:

SRV Records?

  1. Do I need SRV records?
  2. My SRV records point to talk.linuxninjas.tv

_jabber._tcp.linuxninjas.tv. IN SRV 0 0 5269 talk.linuxninjas.tv.
_xmpp-server._tcp.linuxninjas.tv. IN SRV 0 0 5269 talk.linuxninjas.tv.
_xmpp-client._tcp.linuxninjas.tv. IN SRV 0 0 5222 talk.linuxninjas.tv.


I would like a configuration that allows me to move OpenFire to another server / IP Address if possible. I don’t want to be locked into one server / IP. At the moment linuxninjas.tv and talk.linuxninjas.tv are the same IP.

when you say openfire installs fine, did you run through the config after install. This is done by going to http://localhost:9090 on the server. You also need to set up a schema and user in mysql for openfire to use.

I believe everything was configued.

  1. Setup the database
  2. Went to the admin interface for confgiuring the system
  3. Made sure the certs were setup

I can create user accounts with the Linux client Psi. Unable to do so with Pidgin. I get the 400 Bad Request error.

sounds like one of the many errors with pidgin. My client of choice for openfire is spark because it leverages the full power of the server and its many advanced features.
