I have been reading this forum a lot ... unfortunately I couldn't find an answer to my problem.


I have set a messaging server (with Windows Server 2003 and IIS on it) inside my DMZ.

I also have a proxy (dedicated device) ... and all traffic goes through that.

On the messaging server, I have Open Fire installed and SparkWeb on top of my IIS web server.

OpenFire has http-bind enabled and listening on 7070 (and 7443 for HTTPS).


When I go local on my messaging server (lets call it ... I can browse to http://localhost and I can login with different test users I have already created on OpenFire ... and I can chat between them. No problems here

If I go outside my organization and browse to, I get the login page from SparkWeb, but after I input username and password and press Login:

  - nothing happens. ..the page dosen't change...I still see the login page

  - on my browser I see in the status bar  "connecting to <<what I type into Server textbox>>" ... and after a few seconds says "Done"

  - the login button becomes inactive (i have to refresh the page in order to reactivate it)


My SparkWeb config looks like this:


     server: "",
        port: "7070",
        bindPath: "/http-bind/",
        connectionType: "http",
        autologin: "false"


I also tried putting "localhost" or "" or "MyServerName" instead of "" ... no results, same symptoms


Did anyone had this problem before?

What is the fix?
