Default bosh.metajack.im settings

Your book has been very helpful. I'm wondering if you know of a complimentary book for setting up an XMPP server? I can't get my head around why I am able to connect to your server (bosh.metajack.im:5280/xmpp-httpbind) using an xmpp account that was created at www.olark.com. Did you turn off authentication on the bosh.metajacket.im server? I found another server that works a similar way that is used to demo the converse.js javascript client. bind.opkode.im

However, all of the public servers seem to require registration and I want to build a chat client (using what i learned reading your book) that can work with an existing xmpp account from olark.com.

Does my question make sense? I can elaborate more if necessary.

bosh.metajack.im is not an XMPP server, it is a stand-alone BOSH server. This means you can use it with any XMPP server.

Some XMPP servers contain built-in BOSH servers, which only allow you to connect to that server.

You can think of bosh.metajack.im as a proxy service.

Default Stand Along Bosh Server

Thank you for the quick response. Now it makes much more sense to me.

I found this blog post of yours from 2008.
http://metajack.im/2008/09/08/which-...r-do-you-need/

Is this info about stand alone bosh servers still current? Do you know of any public bosh servers?

Thanks!

It's still correct to my knowledge. I don't know anyone who runs a public stand-alone BOSH server besides bosh.metajack.im. It's a service that is easy to abuse, and I provide it only for developers to do testing with so that they can get started with minimal set up requirements.
