[jitsi-dev] SSL errors when connecting from Windows Jitsi but no other client


#1

Hello Devs

I am having from problems with the Jitsi client and SSL certificates which appears to be a bug in Jitsi when using Windows 7

Can anyone suggest a solution?

Background

···

-----------

I run a prosody server (0.94) on Ubuntu. This has been checked against xmpp.net for both s2s and c2s connections and shows no errors.

- The host running prosody is called: xmpp.example.org
- Prosody is set up with a wildcard certificate from Comodo
- I have a SRV record which points:
   _xmpp-client._tcp.example.org. 1800 IN SRV 0 5 5222 xmpp.example.org
- users connect with their account: test@example.org

Issue
------

If I use Windows 7 and Jitsi 2.4(.4997) with JRE 7u55 or 7u60, I get certificate errors

   Jitsi can't verify the identity of the server when connecting to
   example.org, _xmpp-client.example.org

This seems to be an error with Jitsi and Windows 7 as I have successfully connected to the prosody server with the user "test@example.org" using the following clients, none of which give errors:

- windows 7/ pidgin 2.10.9
- windows 7/ gajim 0.16rc1
- windows xp / jitsi 2.4 (with jre 7u55 and 7u60)
- ubuntu / gajim 0.16rc1
- ubuntu / jitsi 2.5

[NOTE: I have replaced all host and domain names for privacy reasons, this in no way changes the outcome]

Does that mean you are unable to connect with Jitsi?
