[jitsi-users] Friend always seems to be offline.


#1

They can't see my status nor can I see theirs. We both switched over to
Jitsi. Seems we are always in offline mode but we can talk by selecting
view offline users and it works..

Any ideas? Tried with production build and the latest nightly version.

MAC vs Windows (64 bit OS).

Tried using AOL IM - OFFLINE STATUS
and then ICQ - Friend create new account and status still showed up Offline

Using the ICQ Web Interface I was able to confirm his status is "On-Line"

Unsure about my status being shown or not. But he said via Jitsi GUI it
said I was offline as well.

Any ideas? We can use secure chat just fine, just can't see each other's
status..

Hey Rob,

We've already had similar reports. Unfortunately however, we don't
have that much time to take care of the ICQ protocol lately.

If anyone is interested in looking into this, please shout out!

Hmm The same issue applies to AIM as we tried AIM also. Can't see when the
other logs in or out. Can you make a recommendation of what
protocols/services do work?

I read on other posts (
http://comments.gmane.org/gmane.comp.voip.sip-communicator.user/1924 , and
http://comments.gmane.org/gmane.comp.voip.sip-communicator.user/1933 ) that
it may be a firewall issue, but neither post was really clear on what do to
fix it.. If it is a firewall requirement, don't see it on the home
website...

If you happen to know firewall requirements please do share..

Thanks

Rob

Hey Robert

ICQ and AIM both use the same protocol stack.

Can't see when the
other logs in or out. Can you make a recommendation of what
protocols/services do work?

If Instant Messaging is what matters most to you then you should
definitely go for XMPP.

I read on other posts (
http://comments.gmane.org/gmane.comp.voip.sip-communicator.user/1924 , and
http://comments.gmane.org/gmane.comp.voip.sip-communicator.user/1933 ) that

It is highly unlikely that what you describe could be a firewall issue.
