[jitsi-users] OTR always fails with error


#1

Been trying to use OTR.

Maybe one in 20 times it works, but we usually get this error:
user@domain.com/resource sent you a message that was intended for another session. If you are logged in multiple times another session may have received this message.

The thing is, we each have only one session. I've even gone to the server and verified that only one resource for each of us is in use.
This has been going on consistently for about a year now.

Also, looking at the jitsi client, on the bottom "status bar" it shows 2 sessions. What does that mean? Where are they coming from? We only log in once. How do you stop it?

Clients are linux mint and Windows 10.
Jitsi 2.8.5426.
Ejabberd 15.04.91 running on Ubuntu server.


#2

these issues have been fixed in the nightly build 5444 and higher,
please update and check/activate "disable message carbons" in the
connection tab of your account setting.

Also, if you say you only have a single client active. Be sure that you
count all other clients, such as smartphones and web clients that may be
logged into that account.

Even if you send messages to only one client, due to the feature called
'message carbons', other clients may still receive a "carbon copy" of
the message. This may also happen with the OTR initiation message, and
so all clients that understand OTR and receive a carbon copy, may
initiate their own session with the message sender. That is what causes
the multiple sessions being established. This is an unfortunate
side-effect from running OTR over XMPP (and is not specific to Jitsi).

Thanks Danny and Mr.Smith.
I'm upgrading all clients to the latest build now...
