Squiggle Client Problem (URGENT: NEED HELP ASAP) :(

Hi hello,

I have been using Squiggle messenger for a month now...but I have a problem regarding network...I will try to post as much details as I can so you guys can help me out...

Here:

I have actually 8 computers connected in the same network, 3 computers directly connected to the internet modem/router while the others are connected through a switch...

so basically there are 2 groups of computers which i call GROUP A(direct to router/1windows xp, 2 windows 7)  and GROUP B(through ethernet switch/5 windows 7)...

my problem is that GROUP A cannot see the other clients from GROUP B and also from the clients within its own while GROUP B is working very fine but also cannot see the clients from GROUP A....

I have tried checking the firewall settings in each computer and all is fine and the ports are allowed for access....I have also installed Squiggle bridge and since my IP CONFIGURATION is

DEFAULT GATEWAY: 192.168.254.254

IP RANGE: 192.168.254.254

SUBNET MASK: 255.255.255.0

PREFERRED DNS: 192.168.254.254

 

so my bridge config is:

FOR GROUP A BRIDGE: (installed on the windows XP computer)

<BridgeConfiguration>
    <internalservicebinding ip="192.168.254.100" port="1235" />
    <externalservicebinding ip="192.168.254.100" port="1236" />
    <channelbinding ip="224.10.11.12" mport="9998" sport="9997" />
    <targets>
      <add ip="192.168.254.225" port="1234" />
    </targets>
  </BridgeConfiguration>

 

FOR GROUP B BRIDGE: (installed on a WINDOWS 7 Pro computer)

<BridgeConfiguration>
    <internalservicebinding ip="192.168.254.225" port="1235" />
    <externalservicebinding ip="192.168.254.225" port="1236" />
    <channelbinding ip="224.10.11.12" mport="9998" sport="9997" />
    <targets>
      <add ip="192.168.254.100" port="1234" />
    </targets>
  </BridgeConfiguration>

But still to no avail...i still cannot see the other clients from the GROUP A computers...

so my questions are:

1. Do I have to install the bridge on all the computers in my network? or

2. Do I have to add all the IP of all the computers in my network? and

3. Is my Squiggle Bridge config correct? and

4. Does Squiggle work in computers with different operating systems?

 

Thank you and I hope you guys can help me fix this problem...much love and support....

Your bridge configuration is incorrect use the following settings.

FOR GROUP A BRIDGE: (installed on the windows XP computer)

<BridgeConfiguration>
    <internalservicebinding ip="192.168.254.100" port="1235" />
    <externalservicebinding ip="192.168.254.100" port="1236" />
    <channelbinding ip="224.10.11.12" mport="9998" sport="9997" />
    <targets>
      <add ip="192.168.254.225" port="1236" />
    </targets>
  </BridgeConfiguration>

FOR GROUP B BRIDGE: (installed on a WINDOWS 7 Pro computer)

<BridgeConfiguration>
    <internalservicebinding ip="192.168.254.225" port="1235" />
    <externalservicebinding ip="192.168.254.225" port="1236" />
    <channelbinding ip="224.10.11.12" mport="9998" sport="9997" />
    <targets>
      <add ip="192.168.254.100" port="1236" />
    </targets>
  </BridgeConfiguration>

Bridge only needs to be installed on one computer in group A and one in group B.

Yes Squiggle can work with different operating systems.

sir here are the local ip of each bridge computer

 

FOR GROUP A: 192.168.254.100 (WINDOWS XP)

FOR GROUP B: 192.168.254.225 (WINDOWS 7 Pro)

 

i am just wondering if your given config is based on the following ip addresses of the bridge computers..

thanks for the speedy response...

Yes my response is based on that assumption.

The problem in your config was that the port specified in one config in externalservicebinding was not the same port specified in target section of the other bridge's config. So two bridges were not able to talk to each other.
Try the new config and tell me if stuff work.
