XMPP Service Operators - 2021-02-11

  1. jayteeuk

    Good morning, all! mathieui I played with movim a little bit, and I've been looking into sàt recently. The latter looks like the kind of thing I was imagining.

  2. jayteeuk

    > Probably, or james.tait, or some variation thereof. 😊 jamestait, in fact. I hadn't realised identi.ca was still up.

  3. tom

    chunk: what is a good demonstration of pubsub?

  4. Ge0rG


  5. Tim_

    Hey folks, I'm currently operating a server with about 60 daily active users. I don't have the time any more to maintain it properly. What would you do?

  6. raucao

    ask people to migrate?

  7. Ge0rG

    Tim_: you could try to find a new admin for the domain and migrate to the new admin, or you could give the people a sunset interval of a month or something like that to migrate

  8. mathieui

    Tim_, I would broadcast a message warning about the sunsetting

  9. mathieui

    and potentially warn about ownership transfer if you manage to find someone to keep it up

  10. Tim_

    I think I'll sunset, the domains are mine and going to be, so there won't be any more xmpp services there :(

  11. Ge0rG

    Tim_: well, technically you could keep the domains and use SRV records to host the XMPP wherever.

  12. Ge0rG

    Some 10% of clients won't be able to connect without SRV, which can be solved with a lean haproxy on the main box

  13. Tim_

    Yeah, thats time I want to spend with my daughter and not something else

  14. mathieui

    Fair enough

  15. jonas’

    Tim_, what kind of users?

  16. jonas’

    friends & family or random people?

  17. Tim_

    Random, it used to be open registration, but I disabled it some times ago

  18. Arne

    You mean through port 443 Ge0rG ?

  19. Ge0rG

    Arne: no, :5222 mostly

  20. shaarad

    As someone who has always kept the registrations closed, doesn't keeping the registrations open invite bots/server abuse?

  21. pepta.net

    shaarad: yes. Implement captchas or invites-based registration only.

  22. shaarad

    Interesting, thanks pepta.net

  23. shaarad

    I'll check how this can be done with prosody

  24. shaarad

    I currently use the server just for myself, but would be happy to have other genuine users if they are interested

  25. pepta.net

    shaarad: yes. Implement captchas or invite-based registrations only.

  26. pepta.net

    shaarad: Example https://modules.prosody.im/mod_invites. Then, there's Prosody MUC for any question related to the software: xmpp:prosody@conference.prosody.im?join

  27. jla

    > Yeah, thats time I want to spend with my daughter and not something else she will enjoy, for sure. Propose users... to move to conversations.im servers ?

  28. shaarad

    pepta.net: thank you, checking

  29. pepta.net

    shaarad: Example https://modules.prosody.im/mod_invites Then, there's Prosody MUC for any question related to the software: xmpp:prosody@conference.prosody.im?join

  30. Licaon_Kter

    shaarad: did you check snikket.org yet?

  31. shaarad

    Licaon_Kter: oh yes, I know about it haven't used it since I'm already running my server since more than a year

  32. Licaon_Kter

    Oh, then https://blog.prosody.im/great-invitations/

  33. shaarad

    Licaon_Kter: are you on the snikket team by any chance?

  34. Licaon_Kter


  35. shaarad


  36. vasan

    shaarad, Licaon_Kter:

  37. shaarad

    vasan: hey

  38. Licaon_Kter

    vasan: ?

  39. shaarad

    Wow, there's an XMPP server for IETF now

  40. shaarad

    Licaon_Kter: quick question, using mod_invitesis tempting, but would it mean that prosody would start binding to 80 and 443 of my server?

  41. shaarad

    I already have a reverse proxy bound to those ports, if prosody could listen to some different ports, I can forward the invite requests from a subdomain to prosody

  42. Licaon_Kter

    shaarad: dunno, do join their MUC

  43. shaarad


  44. Menel

    shaarad: prosody ports can be changed easily. See the doc (http) from the prosody Website. Standard is port 5280/5281 for http/https but look AT the doc because of reverse proxy spexific options.. https://prosody.im/doc/http

  45. Neustradamus

    shaarad: IETF has an XMPP server since a very long time, since 2003 early.
