Description Pedro Francisco 2012-04-19 07:38:54 EDT
Description of problem:
can't connect to Windows Live XMPP.

Should be related to «XMPP: Upcoming Breaking Change to Messenger XMPP Service» in .

Citation: "Starting with the March 2012 release, all XMPP apps connecting to must handle the defined stream error condition "see-other-host" "
[credits to 's comment by "Tom" which pointed me the server behaviour change]

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. create account *using Gnome's Online Accounts*
2. enable chat on created account (on by default)
3. open Empathy, wait for it to attempt to connect

Actual results:
"Connection error" message; logs on "Additional info".

Expected results:
Connection successful, loads contacts.

Additional info:
log in (expires ~May 18)

Workaround to use Windows Live [for anyone else reading and wanting to use Windows Live]:
use Pidgin or use Empathy to add the account without using "online-accounts"; such will use libpurple with old Windows Live protocol which works.
Comment 1 Pedro Francisco 2012-04-19 15:09:44 EDT
Will discuss it further in . 

Error occurs 95% of the times, I was able to connect three times now without understanding what changed.
Comment 2 Pedro Francisco 2012-06-19 09:17:14 EDT
Bug above is another issue. Bug added on "External Trackers" is correct one.
