I've (hopefully) got ejabberd running on mastodon.radio!
Feel free to ping me a message and we can see if this thing is working as intended.
* You are an old school username + password type: #BlabberIM (Android)
You can of course choose any combination, including all of them if you want.
@w8emv I don't see you in my logs, and I think I had missed opening the firewall on ipv6 - which I think I've now done...
@berry I have tried sending you a message.
Basically you want to have your username as berry and the server as mastodon.radio and your password the same as you used to log into mastodon.
If it works, try adding firstname.lastname@example.org as a contact and sending me a message.
Although it is late here so...
@M0YNG Thanks. don't stay awake. I'll try adding you then come back on this evening when you Europeans are awake.
@M0YNG I'm a bit late to the party but I have tried adding you as a contact from my sdf.org account along with trying the conference link given in the thread but the server isn't found :-(
@0 @M0YNG there was one I know of that I was in contact with ages ago - I forget who - they used an Oauth module to authenticate against Mastodon but it had the side effect that if you enabled 2FA on your Masto account, then XMPP no longer worked.
I'm working more toward a path where you can set an additional app password for XMPP from within your Masto user profile.
Eventually I plan to modify the Mastodon side to enable generation or setting of a service-specific password for messaging only, but directly accessing the db is working fine on the scale I'm at right now.
Just saying that prior to this, the only other instance I knew of was using an Oauth module for their XMPP server.
