    Ah,

    Good call.

    I'll give that a try.

    I've not messed with srv records yet. It's about time I expect.

    Thanks much.

    Default Iirc....

    you need the correct ports open on your firewall to your Zimbra server... and two DNS records (maybe just one, not sure).

    Open ports for Zimbra:
    tcp port 5223
    tcp port 5269

    SRV records
    _xmpp-client._tcp.DOMAIN.COM port 5223 --> point to server DNS name/"A" record
    _xmpp-server._tcp.DOMAIN.COM port 5269 --> point to server DNS name/"A" record

    HTH, corrections welcome

    The word "traitor" is the antonym to the word "patriot".

    I'm trying to use Psi with Zimbra aswell.
    Currently we're running a ejabberd server, with all users using psi, but we'd like to strip this ejabberd and use the chat function of Zimbra.

    I tried to setup my zimbra account in PSI, but it fails, whereas I got more success using pidgin (on port 5223).

    I read this thread, any others but I still get this XML Parsing Error.

    Here is the settings I used :

    Account Tab :
    user@MYDOMAIN.com (which is also my email)
    (All other tabs are default)

    Ports :
    I can telnet 5222 and 5223 from client host.

    DNS : (mail.MYDOMAIN.com hosts Zimbra, also the MX record of my domain)
    Code:
    dig _xmpp-client._tcp.MYDOMAIN.com. SRV
    
    ; <<>> DiG 9.6.2-P1-RedHat-9.6.2-3.P1.fc11 <<>> _xmpp-client._tcp.MYDOMAIN.com. SRV

    psi-im is my favorite one but it's not working even with zimbra version 7.1.4.
