[jitsi-users] Security graded list of XMPP servers


#1

I just came across this list of XMPP servers, which rates their
security and was disappointed to note that jabberd.eu, which I've been
using, scores F on both counts.

jabber.ccc.de doesn't seem to be on the list but I've had problems
with logging into that with two different accounts I tried creating,
so haven't used that. Jit.si doesn't appear either.

Anyway, thought others might find it useful when choosing a server.
Maybe it would be good to have a link to it on the Jisti Homepage and
try and make sure only those rated AA are included in the "Create new
account" list in Jitsi?


#2

jit.si's results can be found here:

#3

first registration to jabber.ccc.de does not work via Jitsi client (at
least in my case, always failed), I had to register using Adium or Psi+
(both on Mac) or Pidgin (Win, Linux).
after successful registration using another client than Jitsi, ongoing
usage with Jitsi works without problems, even with port 80 (!) - useful
behind firewalls.
server: jabberd.jabber.ccc.de
port: 80

Thanks. I failed to post the link to the list in my previous post,
which wasn't very useful of me, sorry. https://xmpp.net/directory.php

I can't see jit.si in that list.


#5

Indeed. It seems to register partly as it now says my chosen username
is taken but it won't accept the password I registered with. I had the
same problem with blah.im and boese-ban.de before getting to
ch3kr.net, which worked fine.

In my experience it doesn't work too well for voice/video chat, at
least not if you need ice.
