jabber for windows 9.2.1 error " cannot communicate with server"

Win2k8 domain controller  with  DNS  .

A domain logged in  Winxp system installed with  W4J 9.2.1   is able to resolve the name of the  presence and cucm.

but iam using  ip address in place of server address and selecting presence as server type.

iam still getting "cannot communicate with server "  error.

i did wireshark thing - i clearly see some communication happening between winxp client ( jabber)  and presense server.

but unable to de-code exactly what's happening

Re: jabber for windows 9.2.1 error " cannot communicate with ser

What are you filling in for server address?  and what domain?

Also, what is the server name you have configured on the CUPS server itself?  (go to SUSTEM>CLUSTER TOPOLOGY)


(these names need to line up because of SSL server authentication)

also, can you ping the server from the Jabber client?

I have the same problem. I am running 9.1.2 as well and CUP 8.6.4. I am going to try to go to 8.6.5 tonight and see what happens. Please update the forum if you find a solution.

I'm facing the same issue as well. What is strange is that of our 75 users, all but three work just fine, with the three not working exhibiting the same symptoms, which is "Cannot Communicate with Server". All stations are on the same subnet and I've tried 9.1.2, 9.2.1, and 9.2.2 clients. Since most similarly configured stations work just fine I don't believe there to be a DNS or Server issue. In fact, the three that can no longer log in were working just fine until a couple weeks ago when they just started saying "Cannot Communicate with Server".

Hi cgbritton,

Can you confirm if the connection details are correct in the File > Change connection settings dialog?

Would it be possible for you to upload a problem report here following these steps:

  • Exit client
  • Delete/Rename Jabber folder under "C:\Users\username\AppData\Local\Cisco\Unified Communications"
  • Start client
  • When the login fails, go to Start > All Programs > Cisco Jabber and click on “Cisco Jabber Problem Report”
  • Save the report on your desktop and attach with this thread

Hi nisarmaqsood,

The format of your xml file is invalid that is why client is not able to parse it properly. Check "XML Structure" and "Configuration Issues" section in admin guide for further information.

Thanks,

I actually got it working later that day by exporting the registry keys:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Cisco Systems, Inc.\JabberWerxCpp

and

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Cisco Systems, Inc.\Client Services

from a machine that worked and it resolved the issue on the three machines that went AWOL.

I don't have any clients working, it is a new install. Could you be so  kind as to post a screen shot of what the registry keys were? I will  likely need to manually enter them to get this working. Seems strange  though.

Had my colleague share the

Had my colleague share the host file located at C:\windows\system32\drivers\etc from a machine that works and then replaced it under the same destination on my PC

I was able to sign in and I do not receive the above error anymore.

ok ,  i shave a update on this issue !

finally i got it worked , but i did the multiple task to figure it out !  here is the list ,, this is just my personal view not necessary it would be for others 

1. I updated the  jabber client to   version 9.2.2

2. I updated my WinXP SP  and  joined to the domain .   '

3. I  Reinstalled the  Presense  8.6.5 , but  this time with corrent  DNS  Settings , i used the "cups865"  as hostname as against  ip address., and joined to
domain .
4. Deleted and Added the  A record in DNS server ,etc..
5. jabber-config.xml file was re-installed as suggested above  with correct format .

i gave a thought about the  DNS settings  as suggested by  "Jaime Valencia  " ..   as  the error was also

referring it to .

thanks for pointing in the right directions ....   login is successfull,,got a lot of work on its features.

I had the issue too.  Solution for me was DNS related.  Since we did not have the FQDN of the server in our DNS it failed and to bypass I put it in the local hostfile (good way to test if you dont have access to the DNS servers).  The domain had to match the user domain of the person logging in.  for example

entry in the Host file of

10.2.2.45     cups1.domain.com

10.2.2.35     cucm1.domain.com

in the server selction you would put in whatever resolves to the cups server (I used an IP pf 10.2.2.45)

domain is my user account domain in cups userdomain.com

login

user (Associated with userdomain.com)

then your password.

I am sure that is clear as mud, but it is basicly how ours worked.  However, if you changed the domain on your server for the users, I had to restart my server to get it to work.

Also, jabber for iphone and android worked without any DNS required.
