XMPP Service Operators - 2019-07-20

  1. EmleyMoor

    I'm having a problem joining a MUC, in that it seems my server and the one hosting it are just not communicating. Is there any such thing as a "relay" I might use, and how do I find one?

  2. Holger

    EmleyMoor: Most probably such public service, no. You tried contacting the remote admin?

  3. EmleyMoor

    Yes. No response as yet

  4. Licaon_Kter

    EmleyMoor: is this your server, you know what the error is?

  5. EmleyMoor

    My server. Lack of any error, just plain nothing happening when I try to join.

  6. EmleyMoor

    It's not saying it hasn't worked but it's clearly not working either

  7. Holger

    You should see at least a lot line for the outgoing connection attempt.

  8. EmleyMoor

    Yes, but that's it

  9. Licaon_Kter

    EmleyMoor: up the loglevel

  10. Holger

    You should see at least a log line for the outgoing connection attempt.

  11. Licaon_Kter

    What server software?

  12. EmleyMoor


  13. Licaon_Kter

    Loglevel 4 should give you that info

  14. EmleyMoor

    loglevel already 4

  15. Holger

    Then it would be interesting to check whether the remote server at least tries to connect back. `[info]` level should show that, yes.

  16. Licaon_Kter

    Paste such a log line,

  17. Holger

    If it doesn't, and if that remote server works with others, chances are it's a Prosody that ran into their "hanging s2s" bug.

  18. EmleyMoor

    Looks like it just plain times out

  19. EmleyMoor

    Others can join, though

  20. Holger

    In that case it would work again after their next restart.

  21. Holger

    > Looks like it just plain times out You don't see their IP address connecting?

  22. EmleyMoor

    Write a message…ejabberd.log:2019-07-20 09:12:51.456 [info] <0.5870.0>@ejabberd_s2s_out:init:280 Outbound s2s connection started: firthpark.tinsleyviaduct.com -> muc.poez.io

  25. Holger

    Nothing else from that IP address?

  26. EmleyMoor


  27. Holger

    That's a Prosody indeed. My guess would be that bug.

  28. EmleyMoor

    Holger, How can it be affecting apparently just me?

  29. Holger

    Connection attempt fails once for whatever reason, then Prosody is stuck in that attempt to connect to that domain forever.

  30. EmleyMoor

    But how can I get it "unstuck"? Or find a way around?

  31. Holger

    As I said above. They must restart their server, or use the telnet console to kill the hanging attempt.

  32. EmleyMoor

    So, you are telling me that this is nigh-on impossible... oh well

  33. Holger

    Well I'm saying it's an issue with the remote server that only the remote admin can solve. If it's the bug I'm guessing.

  34. EmleyMoor

    He's *too* remote

  35. Holger

    Isn't that Link Mauve's or matt mathieui's?

  36. Holger

    Isn't that Link Mauve's or mathieui's?

  37. EmleyMoor

    Unless you know some other support channel for biboumi I'm UTCWAP

  38. Holger

    (And/or louiz')

  39. EmleyMoor

    It's Louiz I've tried to contact

  40. pep.

    muc.poez.io is only louiz

  41. Holger

    pep.: Ah.

  42. pep.

    Somebody reported it in the poezio@ room yesterday, I don't know if he's had a look

  43. mathieui

    maybe we could open a ticket in te infra tracker too

  44. Jonny

    !contact rimkus.it

  45. pep.

    Ah right, EmleyMoor, https://lab.louiz.org/louiz/infra/issues/ < as mathieui said

  46. EmleyMoor

    pep., Can you narrow it down?

  47. EmleyMoor

    (or have I misunderstood?)

  48. pep.

    You can report issues for muc.poez.io there

  49. Licaon_Kter

    pep.: how can report when s2s doesn't work with EmleyMoor's server?

  50. pep.

    That's a gitlab instance

  51. Licaon_Kter

    pep.: right the other way....got it

  52. EmleyMoor

    I just cannot remember my gitlab details (other than username)

  53. pep.

    It's not gitlab.com

  54. EmleyMoor

    So it's likely not the same as any similar?

  55. pep.

    You can create an account on that instance, or you can use your github account

  56. pep.

    Maybe he could also allow gitlab.com accounts

  57. EmleyMoor

    Like I say, if I have a github account its details are not known to me

  58. pep.

    What do you mean? You don't know if you have a github account?

  59. EmleyMoor

    I have a username that my browser wants to put in but that's it

  60. pep.

    Maybe just create an account on lab.louiz.org then

  61. EmleyMoor

    OK, done

  62. EmleyMoor

    Anyone on here familiar enough with biboumi to tell me how to configure its server options?

  63. jonas’

    EmleyMoor, server options?

  64. EmleyMoor

    Options related to IRC servers. Looking to configure them before attempting a connection, if possible.
