Sun Java System Instant Messaging 7.2 Administration Guide

ProcedureTo Configure an Instant Messaging Server as a Redirect Server

Before You Begin

You cannot use versions of Instant Messenger older than 2006Q1 with the redirect server. If you use a third party client, ensure that the client supports XMPP redirection.

  1. Gather the information in Table 7–1 above.

  2. Open iim.conf.

    See Appendix A, Instant Messaging Configuration Parameters in iim.conf for instructions on locating and modifying this file.

  3. Modify the parameter values to match your deployment.

    Table 7–1 lists the parameters for which you need to provide values. If the parameters do not exist in iim.conf, add them. The following example shows the section of iim.conf on corresponding to the redirect server parameters you need to modify.

  4. Save your changes and close iim.conf.

  5. Refresh the configuration on the redirect server.

  6. Configure clients to connect to the redirect server instead of the multiplexor.
