OK, so. i have jabberd2 and mu-conference set up on one of my servers, and have had it so for several years. Prior to that I had it running on a Solaris 10 box. Either way, remote users could connect to mu-conference chats set up on our jabberd ... as long as they used an account also set up on our local jabberd. I know that XMPP is SUPPOSED to allow federated connections; as I understand it, anyone with any jabber account anywhere (GTalk for example) should be able to connect to my mu-conference chats provided they have the right address and the password for the chat. But I can't seem to make that actually work.

Can anyone tell me what it is I'm most likely doing wrong or not doing? Any firewall ports that need to be opened that I don't know about? Any kind of peering i need to set up, and how? Etc? I've obviously missed (or misunderstood) something, but if I knew what it was, I wouldn't have to be asking.

Do you have correct DNS SRV records for _xmpp-server._tcp.(hostname) and _xmpp-server._tcp.(MUC hostname)? Is your SSL (required) properly configured?

Are you trying to federate to Google (Gtalk)? They don't support encryption for XMPP federation at all.

Basically every other XMPP server requires encryption for federation (there was a flag day on this topic a couple years ago), so the situation is rather unfortunate given the sizable count of Google users.
