Today we have experienced a distributed denial of service attack against the jabber.org IM service. Although the web server and email server are running fine, we have been forced to take the IM service offline today, until your (volunteer!) admin team has time to determine appropriate countermeasures. UPDATE 2012-08-12: We’ve made some DNS fixes and many clients are now able to connect.
Folks, we are currently experiencing problems with our online user registration page at register.jabber.org, so have temporarily taken it offline. The admin team is investigating the problem and we will post again as soon as we have more information. Until then, try one of the servers listed at xmpp.net. Our apologies for any inconvenience.
whew … down since Christmas eve .. but everything is back up and running now .. sorry about that people.
still no progress sorry .. I have logged a bug with the software developer
thanks for the info .. plus I fixed the forum
Hi! The icq transport seems to be down. I’d leave a comment in the forum but the links are all broken
I’ve also added some more transports if you’re interested.
facebook (xmpp requires a facebook username)
As you’ve probably noticed, the jabber.org service has been experiencing connectivity problems with gmail.com and other Google Talk domains (e.g., you might not be able to see if your contacts there are online). The folks at Google are working on a solution and we will post again once they have fixed the problem.
Just a quick note that the jabber.org admin team (thanks, Kev!) worked with the Google Talk admin team (thanks Jonas and Pascal!) to diagnose the problem. It turns out that Google had some broken DNS records, which have been fixed. Data is flowing smoothly again, but as always let us know if you experience any further problems.
Today I hit the move button to move jabber.co.nz to its’ new server
I’ve changed transports from py-transports to spectrum, so hopefully things will work a bit better, plus the server is bigger better fast.
Downtime should be limited to DNS ttl, so about an hour maybe?
Let me know if anything is awry.
