    moparisthebest, websockets and other alt transports were introduced for client adoption/improvement especially due to mobile and the shift towards web technologies. honestly, i don't think any effort in alt s2s transports would be as beneficial as effort rather put into c2s transport improvements. if anything, i see it introducing more complexity into a portion of the stack that is already stable and established.

    junaid, why not both though? I mean, why create a new c2s transport and not just go ahead and also make it useable for s2s ?

    moparisthebest, i didn't say "no" but rather focused on the benefit that would be derived by such s2s efforts. like any community, we ultimately have a finite amount of resources. separately, for s2s, i don't see websockets/sse/other-new-hotness showing a significant improvement against straight-up TCP connections between always-on servers. for c2s on the other hand, i figure we need to have a deep think about how to streamline our approach and (hopefully) choose a route that's more extendible going forward. sse yesterday. websockets today. new-hotness tomorrow.... i don't think it's wish to burden server dev teams with keeping up with the latest web trends like that ๐Ÿ˜๏ธ

  234. moparisthebest

    junaid, quic for example seems to have very good benefits for both c2s and s2s

  235. moparisthebest

    websockets, maybe, maybe not, but I'd argue if you have c2s support it's trivial to add s2s support for any transport

    I do not know whether this is a good idea or not, but I do know that just because something is trivial doesn't make it a good idea or mean you should do it. Any claim that we should do anything because it's trivial should be viewed with extreme skepticsism.

    I agree with Sam. The question is not, or at least not only, about whether the coding effort seems trivial. In practice, introducing another transport forces everyone (server devs, XMPP and firewall admins, monitoring DevOps) to implement and offer both the existing and the new transports for interop. So there's yet another code path that needs testing, there's additional monitoring complexity, and it makes debugging harder. So if the idea is this comes with no cost, I'd disagree.

  325. Holger

    Just offering both STARTTLS and XMPPS can already be annoying in these regards.

  622. sonny

    I also don't see the point in ws s2s, if it doesn't solve a problem, it's unnecessary complexity

  623. sonny

    Plus there is already a replacement in the work with unreliable message support. Wb features have been deprecated/removed before and so might Websocket.

    QUIC has nothing to do with restrictive firewalls, but it does bring many nice things as a replacement for TCP+TLS that I think equally apply to S2S

    Isnt quic horribly complex to implement? Thats what i have heard at least

    at what level ?

  671. Andrzej has left

  672. Andrzej has joined

  673. moparisthebest

    from an application point of view it's the same as TCP+TLS, if not a bit easier, in both cases you import your library that handles it for you and get a stream from it

  674. BASSGOD has joined

  675. moparisthebest

    hopefully no XMPP clients or servers are currently rolling their own TLS library, and therefore also won't roll their own QUIC library?

  676. adiaholic has left

  677. adiaholic has joined

  678. Holger

    moparisthebest: I would've thought it's somewhat tailored towards typical web client use cases (short-lived queries of many resources via unreliable networks)? I.e. optimization of connection establishment, roaming, multiplexing?

  679. msavoritias

    Sure. But sometning being more complex means less implementations. Which leads to less choices, less community participation etc... See matrix, web browsers

  680. jonasโ€™

    Holger, I looked into QUIC for a side project, and it seemed to be quite useful for XMPP actually

  681. jonasโ€™

    c2s anyway, because of the very efficient roaming

  682. Holger

    Yes I'll easily buy it for c2s. L

  683. moparisthebest

    Holger, ah, well we only have google to blame for the naming confusion because they originally called http3 quic, but names have been shuffled around

  684. Holger

    This was about s2s specifically.

  685. govanify has left

  686. moparisthebest

    quic is a drop-in replacement for tcp+tls

  687. govanify has joined

  688. jonasโ€™

    (more like SCTP+TLS)

  689. moparisthebest

    h3 is a layer on top of quic, like http1/http2/xmpp is a layer on top of tcp+tls

  690. jonasโ€™

    (more like SCTP+TLS or multi-path-TCP+TLS even)

  691. rafasaurus has joined

    Yes and I thought the replacement was about these topics mainly but whatever.

    You say it brings 'many nice things' to s2s, I'm clueless and was just asking 'which things?'.

  696. BASSGOD has left

  697. moparisthebest

    just off the top of my head benefit wise: 1. there is free roaming (switching IPs without terminating connections), which you could fairly say applies much more to clients than servers, but my server runs in my closet and I have a dynamic IP, so that's not universally true 2. multiple independent streams with only 1 encryption context and no head-of-line blocking, so piggybacking without head-of-line blocking 3. stream resumption but at the quic-level, so if your internet drops out for a minute, you don't need to re-establish any connections

  698. Zash

    TCP can handle hours of network outage if you let it

  699. moparisthebest

    then just combine #3 with #1

  700. jonasโ€™

    > 1. there is free roaming (switching IPs without terminating connections), which you could fairly say applies much more to clients than servers, but my server runs in my closet and I have a dynamic IP, so that's not universally true this doesn't really help you in s2s, if both servers have a dynamic IP and switch IPs around the same time.

  701. jonasโ€™

    so you need strategies for that anyway

  702. moparisthebest

    that sounds like a pretty unlikely edge case, it still helps you in the majority of cases though right ?

  703. Zash

    And there was something I remember about QUIC being incompatible with either OpenSSL or TLS itself, so a huge chunk of the current network stack would need to be replaced and I'm unconvinced of the ROI

  704. jonasโ€™

    no, in the majority of cases it doesn't matter

  705. jonasโ€™

    because servers have static IPs :)

  706. moparisthebest

    not mine :)

  707. jonasโ€™

    moparisthebest: Your dynamic IP address will only change every now and then, no? We're talking about TCP-TLS's reconnection latency in that situation?

  717. moparisthebest

    I *think* you can keep connections open across service restarts in theory, though I don't know if any existing libraries support something like that

  718. moparisthebest

    yep, so far my dynamic IP only changes about every 6 months so I don't care, but they guarantee nothing about it

  719. Holger

    Hmm, not sure I'm sold ๐Ÿ™‚

  720. moparisthebest

    maybe QUIC makes people more likely to run servers on their phones, the people who like p2p anyway :)

  721. jonasโ€™

    (keeping connections open is nice and all, but saving the state on top of those connections makes it typically not worth it.)

  722. debacle has joined

  723. moparisthebest

    I've already known 2 people who have done this for awhile

  724. Holger

    I would think the real issue we see with s2s in practice is reliability, no matter whether the address is dynamic. If QUIC brings some magic fix for that, I *am* sold.

  725. moparisthebest

    I'm somewhat afraid we'll only see that benefit in the beginning, while bad middleboxes only fiddle with TCP stuff like keepalives, QUIC should be much better until they catch up...

  726. Link Mauve

    moparisthebest, Iโ€™ve had Prosody running on my phone for more than a decade, it just works and since my ISP gives me a static IPv6 it can even federate with other servers living in the 21st century.

  727. moparisthebest

    my ISP briefly handed out some ipv6 addresses once upon a time then just quit :'(

  728. Link Mauve

    But of course, I mostly keep it to testing.

  729. Link Mauve

    moparisthebest, wat, why?

  730. moparisthebest

    don't ask me, I've never been able to reach anyone on the phone that knows what ipv6 is

  731. Link Mauve


  732. Link Mauve

    Maybe time to switch to a better ISP?

  733. moparisthebest

    same company that was a big sponsor of world ipv6 day some years back too

  734. moparisthebest

    haha good one

  735. moparisthebest

  736. Sam

  762. Sam

    Oh boy, yah, I lived in an area where comcast was the only provider for a while, they were *way* worse than AT&T (not that AT&T is good, but they're better)

  763. Zash

    Used to be more ISPs, but some of them bought the others and then got bough by the former state telco monopoly...
