[jitsi-users] Exception in the videobridge


Getting the following exception while bringing up the videobridge on Linux platform:

Exception in thread "main" org.xmpp.component.ComponentException: not-authorized
at org.jivesoftware.whack.ExternalComponent.connect(ExternalComponent.java:219)
at org.jivesoftware.whack.ExternalComponentManager.addComponent(ExternalComponentManager.java:221)
at org.jivesoftware.whack.ExternalComponentManager.addComponent(ExternalComponentManager.java:201)
at org.jitsi.videobridge.Main.main(Main.java:159)

Definitely happens after connection to the XMPP server succeeded. Doesn't happen on all the Linux platforms.
Is this in any way related to a particular version of Java JRE? If yes - which version should I be running with?
Any advise is greatly appreciated.


The "not-authorized" message suggests that Jitsi Videobridge is unable
to successfully authenticate to the XMPP server as a external Jabber
component. Make sure that Jitsi Videobridge specifies the shared
password through the --secret= command line argument that has been
configured in the XMPP server.
