I have spent numerous hours working with openfire, spark, and sparkweb. I still consider myself an amateur in this area. I have 2 working installation of openfie and sparkweb. This one is the first that I am trying with red5 plugin.


I am able to login from inside my network but I am not able to login from the outside. Although I can use the spark client from the outside. I get to the splash page but once I hit login it reloads the page. I have verified that it is processing my credential because if I use an invalid username it tells me not authorized. Either way when I hit login the page is reloaded.Keep in mind that this works perfectly from inside my network. My goal is to eventually secure it but I just want to get it working first. I know the most common issue would be ports open on my router.Although I'm certain these should all be TCP I opened UDP just to make sure. I have verified they are all pointing to the correct server.


Open Ports










The next would probably be my config file.


var username = getPageParameter('username', '');
        var password = getPageParameter('password', '');
        var autologin = getPageParameter('autologin', 'false');
        var webapp = getPageParameter('webapp', 'red5');         
        var conn = getPageParameter('conn', 'http');            // socket, http or rtmp (using xmppurl below)
        var tls = getPageParameter('tls', 'true');                // socket, use TLS or not


        return {


            username: username,
            password: password,
            server: window.location.hostname,
            port: conn == "socket" ? 5222 : window.location.port,
            red5url: "rtmp:/sip",
            xmppurl: "rtmpt::8000/xmpp",
            webapp: webapp,
            connectionType: conn,
            connectionTLS: tls,
            policyFileURL: "xmlsocket://" + window.location.hostname + ":5229",
            webcamAvatar: "false",
            visualPresence: 120,
            historyChats: 2,
            autologin: autologin


Please help. I have been working on this for way to long. I do not understand what I could be missing.


Thank you in advance
