I've got Jitsi running on two PCs on my LAN to test.
If I send from my google account to another google account, that
correctly won't send messages unless I've got a private conversation
started (it tells the other user that I'm writing a message but not
the contents and I get "You sent me an unreadable encrypted message"
back and then it autostarts a private conversation).
However, if I send from my jabberd.eu account to another jabberd.eu
account (or a jabber.ccc.de account), it sends the messages
unencrypted and doesn't warn me at all (it says on the other machine
"This message was sent unencrypted". Now if I send a message back from
the chat window opened on the second machine, it works as expected and
the same thing happens as with the google account. It also works if I
start the chat from the second machine but the first machine can End
Private Conversation and then send unencrypted messages back.
After doing this, with Private Conversation on I now don't receive
messages on either machine, even though it shows in the chat window "x
is typing a message". Only with it off do the messages come through
I'm sure when I first noticed this problem yesterday that it was
sending the messages unencrypted from the second machine, when I
started the chat there but it seems to be the other way round now.
I'm a bit confused as to why it has:
Start Private Conversation
Enable Private Messaging
Automatically Initiate Private Messaging
Require Private Messaging
as I'd expect, with Require enabled, it would automatically start all
chats with it enabled but if I End a Private Conversation (which I'm
not sure why that's even an option, especially if Require is enabled)
then when I next open a chat, Private Conversation is not started
.What's the difference between Private Messaging and Private
All accounts have "Allow non-secure connections" disabled.
On another matter, I'm having trouble with jabber.ccc.de and have
created two accounts on there which I can't login to. I might have
forgotten the password for the first one but I made a note of the
second. I've just tried to create a third but if I try and use my
first username, nothing happens (I presume it's rejecting it because
it already exists but it doesn't say anything). When I used a
different username, the Create Account window just shrunk and froze up
and crashed Jitsi and I had to kill it with Task Manager.
Also, I just tried to drag a contact from one group to another (a
jabber.ccc.de contact from a group named jabber.ccc.de into a group
named jabberd.eu) and after confirming, it just disappeared! Actually,
I see what's happened, it's merged the two contacts for some reason.
Why would someone want to merge contacts, doesn't that make it
impossible to select which one for chatting?
I also managed to get duplicates of a contact listed. I think I added
an entry for the contact and named it with the person's name and then
later when I received a message/authorisation request from the user,
it added a second entry showing just the jabberd.eu address.
