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 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?

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

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)


where 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 i can access it but not remotely with my public ip, i have forwarded the ports and checked it thru that the port 9090 is open, disabled all the firewalls, but still cannot get it to access – john Jan 5 '14 at 8:14
