@Ingo Jürgensmann I see you in the global directory,
All (friendly) creatures welcome! Free registration. Server located in Germany. As a registered user on Nerdica.Net you are also able to use XMPP (Jabber) under the same address and with your password. Get the best of free and open networks at Nerdica.Net! :-)


I tried getting Jabber to work a couple of months ago. I gave up. Do you have instructions for how to achieve this feat of technical prowess?

What are the the issues you've faced with XMPP/Jabber? Is it in general or getting XMPP work with Friendica?

Theirs this history of it.
https://github.com/friendica/friendica/issues/6636

But I remember trying to get a Jabber server working for my Nextcloud server over a year ago and never did it right. For that one, I gave up because they have a native system they call "Talk" which is a Spreed type system.

Well, in fact it is just a matter of where the user data resides and how you can access it.

For Friendica I'm using a external auth script for my Prosody XMPP server that queries the Friendica database. As described in that Friendica issue, it is important to have BOSH working properly. For Prosody you'll to also add some trusted list for the domains you want to use with the BOSH connection.

For Nextcloud it's basically the same.

Be aware that Nextcloud Talk uses foreign cloud services unless you are hosting your own TURN server and such, which can become a mess to setup.

For Nerdica you can find some information here:

- https://nerdica.net/display/a85d7459-105c-59e0-fa1b-ed0595618689

Because you are using ejabberd there is not much I can help with specific details in configuration.

The nextcloud has 3 options, I took the dummy option. I'm too ignorant to really know the trade-offs. I'll be looking at your suggestions in the coming weeks. Thanks for your help so far.

Uhm, well, that the settings for Talk addon, not for the Javascript XMPP client.
For the XMPP addon you may need to fill in the following settings:
- XMPP domain
- BOSH URL, like: /http-bind/
- API URL, like: https://yourdomain.org/apps/ojsxc/ajax/externalApi.php
- Secure API token should be filled
