I set up openfire on a remote server by building the source. It works locally on the server, as ssh-ing into it and wget 127.0.0.1:9090 both work. However, I am not able to access the admin console externally, i.e. http://domainname:9090 doesn't load. What do I do to get this to work?

There are many possible reasons why this won't work. Does openfire actually bind to the IP address that domainname resolves to? What happens if you do (on the server itself)

wget http://1.2.3.4:9090

where 1.2.3.4 is your public IP address? Is there a firewall? Has the DNS for domainname be configured and is working correctly?

i have installed openfire on my PC, if i do 192.168.1.111:9090 i can access it but not remotely with my public ip, i have forwarded the ports and checked it thru http://www.yougetsignal.com/tools/open-ports/ that the port 9090 is open, disabled all the firewalls, but still cannot get it to access –  john Jan 5 at 8:14
