I recently decided to use Jabber, and I’ve created a few users using the admin panel at Dreamhost, which are currently active (and the corresponding .XML’s have been created).
For the client, I’ve chosen Exodus. However, I cannot seem to connect. Perhaps I have some misunderstanding of how Jabber, clients, and Dreamhost are supposed to work together…
In my Login profile for Exodus, I’ve the following:
o Username: jaranth (I’ve also tried firstname.lastname@example.org, which is the username listed in my admin panel)
o Server: jaranth.com (I’ve also tried www.jaranth.com, as well as jabber/jaranth.com, among other pathnames).
I’ve stuck mainly with the default connection setup, though I’ve tried a few things in the “Host” blank. If there are any special requirements Dreamhost needs for a connection (besides port 5222), I am unaware of them.
The client seems to connect, then it immediately disconnects. Sporadically, I receive and error that states that my account is not present on the server, and asks me to create one (???). If I answer “yes”, I receive THIS:
Access violation at address 004DF73E in module ‘Exodus.exe’. Read of address 00000000.
Viewing the debug window reveals little to me…
I’m 100% in favor of Jabber and GNU in general but, to be expected, detailed docs and situational help are difficult to find… so, any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
