Setting up yahoo-transport...

Hey all,

I'm looking for some help setting up the yahoo-transport-2.  I've
downloaded the latest source and followed the directions to in the
INSTALL file.  It compiles fine, but I'm stuck on the configuration
part.

Here's what the directions read:

        NOTE: You must update the yahoo-jabber.xml to contain the Yahoo
        server name and port number!! PLEASE use the one that is
        provided in the tarball or in CVS!!

Does this mean that the transport reads this exact file (i.e.
/opt/jabber/yahoo-transport-2/yahoo-jabber.xml), or do I have to put
this file in /opt/jabber, or do I need to take the bits from this file
and put it in my main jabber.xml file?

What is the yahoo server name and port number?  Is that the jid I
provide and a random port I provide or is it for the yahoo server the
transport will connect to?

The top of the yahoo-jabber.xml file looks like this:

<jabber>
    <service id="yahoo-linker">
        <connect>
            <ip></ip>
            <port></port>
            <secret></secret>

The config example you posted if for yahoo-transport-2 running in its 
own process. (This is a good thing).

If you already had version 2.0 running and want to upgrade to 2.1 you 
have to add the <server/>, <port/> and <charmap/> element.
If you had version 1.x yahoo-transport running you have to completely 
rewrite your config.

If it is your first time installation take the config example and change 
the id-attributes in the second <service/> tag. The first <serivce/> tag 
you have to configure with the settings you make in the main jabber.xml 
configuration file. This could be the following:

Add this to the main jabber.xml:

    <service id="yahoo-linker">
        <host>yahoo.amessage.info</host>
        <accept>
            <ip>127.0.0.1</ip>
            <port>5615</port>
            <secret>hOH-93Mu</secret>
        </accept>
    </service>

RE: Jabber version 2 - time to move?

I've had some problems with NT 4.0 WS with SP 6a - Some as simple as a
missing .dll error msg., 2 others had to reinstall OL98 client as it quit
working.  I don't remember the error msg. they were getting with the mail
client error.

With 2000 or XP, it's been flawless so far.

Hi there,

So is it worth the move to jabber v2?  The main question I have is do the
transports still all work more or less?

Anyone had any problems with any of the jabber clients out there talking to
jabber v2?

Please disregard my last post.  I was thinking of the new myJabber V3
client.  Plenty embarrassing.

Server connect failed

Quick background details:

Jabberd 1.4.2 running on FreeBSD 4.5-STABLE (May 20th). Using gmake (of
course) 3.79.1.

Problem:

Daemon set to run on port 5222/5223 for c2s and 5269 for s2s on 
luser.cc (has it's own ip, reverse, and suchlike). Users can register
and connect fine, however, any connection to outside servers fail with:

20021202T11:04:08: [notice] (domain.com): failed to establish connection
20021202T11:04:08: [notice] (domain.com): bouncing a packet to
user <at> domain.com from martin <at> luser.cc: Server Connect Failed

replace domain with whatever you want - they all fail the same.

I can connect to luser.cc on all necessary ports, and can connect to
domain.com in the same way as expected. No firewalls interfering, no
NAT's, nothing. Clean connection.

So, strace'ing the parent process when idle:

select(15, [3 4 7 8 11 13 14], [], [], {0, 999990}) = 0 (Timeout)
sigprocmask(SIG_SETMASK, ~[KILL STOP], NULL) = 0
gettimeofday({1038832836, 634539}, NULL) = 0
sigprocmask(SIG_BLOCK, NULL, ~[KILL STOP]) = 0
sigprocmask(SIG_SETMASK, [], NULL)      = 0
gettimeofday({1038832836, 636705}, NULL) = 0
sigprocmask(SIG_BLOCK, NULL, [])        = 0

Do you have a jabber account elsewhere?  If so, send me an IM with it
and I can watch the logs while your luser.cc server tries to connect -
see if it is even talking to the port.

I just tried to send martin <at> luser.cc an IM and got this:

20021202T17:30:12: [alert] (s2s): We were told by luser.cc that our sending name data.4t3.com is
invalid, either something went wrong on their end, we tried using that name improperly, or dns does not
resolve to us
20021202T17:30:12: [notice] (luser.cc): bouncing a packet to martin <at> luser.cc from
athlonrob <at> data.4t3.com/GAIM: Server Connect Failed

Could you be having DNS problems on the system?

authentication

Hi,

I had a question about Jabber:
Is it possible to use an authentication method like Active Directory? If not what approach should I take to
import all users from AD to Jabber?

Thanks,

help with AIM transport setup

Hi,
I'm trying to setup Jabber (1.4.2) with AIM transport (0.9.25) running on the same Solaris 8 box.  It is for internal use within my company, but users will be able to IM to others at AOL.   I got Jabber to work internally, but still cant get the AIM piece to work.  The Jabber error.log didn't provide any errors, so I don't know if the problem lies within the server config or if I've specified the wrong info on the client gui.

Here are the steps i took to register with a service and the error i've got:
1. Register with a service using Exodus 0.7.0.4: Tools -> Jabber browser ->
   AIM transport -> Register -> Added in my AOL AIM userid and password -> Finish
2. Add a friend's AOL AIM to contact list: Tools -> Contacts -> Add contact ->
   "AIM" type, "xxx" contact id, nehil.company.com for gateway server
 
Error:  "The contact:  xxx <at> nehil.company.com did not grant your subscription request.
 This user may not exist."
 
Here's my server config:
 
    <host><jabberd:cmdline flag="h">nehil.company.com</jabberd:cmdline></host>

        <service type="aim" jid="nehil.company.com" name="AIM Transport">
          <ns>jabber:iq:gateway</ns>
          <ns>jabber:iq:register</ns>
        </service>

        <service id="nehil.company.com">
          <load><aim_transport>/path_to_my_aimtrans/aimtrans.so</aim_transport></load>
          <aimtrans xmlns='jabber:config:aimtrans'>
            <aimbinarydir>/path_to_my_aimbinary/</aimbinarydir>
            <vCard>
              <FN>AIM Transport</FN>
              <DESC>An AIM Transport!</DESC>
              <URL>http://foo.bar/</URL>
        &n b! sp;   </vCard>
          </aimtrans>
        </service>
 
I have no idea what's going, please help!....and let me know if more info is needed.  Thank you.
