PHPBB3 / Jabber / Dreamhost


Im looking to get the Jabber feature working with phpbb3. ive enabled it via the control panel and made an active user. and ive plugged the info into phpbb3 several differant ways and i get the following error


Could not authorise on Jabber server.

SEND: <?xml version='1.0' encoding='UTF-8' ?>

SEND: <stream:stream to=‘’ xmlns=‘jabber:client’ xmlns:stream=‘’ version=‘1.0’>

RECV: <?xml version='1.0'?><stream:stream xmlns:stream=‘’ id=‘46C3D34C’ xmlns=‘jabber:client’ from=‘’>

Timeout, no response from server.

ive telnet into the jabber via 5222 and it connects so i know its up and running. Ive even tried using localhost as the jabber server name both and localhost give the same error. But if i do something i know that wont work it gives a socket error does not exist. so it must be atleast seeing it? right? anyways if someone has gotten this to work on dreamhost please give me a shout id like to toy around with this.

I don’t believe localhost is going to work as the jabber server is not usually on your local box. You may check with DH directly.
