I added the server’'s name to my local hosts file and
changed the client to use username@hostname and it
now connects to the server. Thank you very much!
This was not an issue with previous versions of Jive.
Is there a way I can fix this, server side, as I do
not wish to modify host files for every client. The
Admin page would not save the Server name as an IP
Yes, there were some changes made for more strict handling of servername. But i thought it’'s only affecting s2s. Then using s2s you must use username@servername form then adding contacts. But for a local use IP should still work.
Well, i’'m with Wildfire 2.4.4, it has static IP - 192.168.12.41 and “jiveserver” name in server rc.conf and a line in hosts:
127.0.0.1 localdomain jiveserver
In Admin Console it’'s named jiveserver also.
When connecting new users i use username@jiveserver (and host: 192.168.12.41) in Exodus. But a lot of users are still logging as firstname.lastname@example.org and it works. s2s is disabled. Maybe i’'m mising something about your problem?
P.S. BTW there were no mentions about that change in servername handling in changelog? I cant find anything about that, nor cant find a thread where we were discussing it with Gato.
