Subject: XMPP/Jaber Problem: too many contacts (Roster limit)
Date: Tue, 18 Mar 2008 20:06:44 +0900

X-Mailer: Mulberry/4.0.8 (Linux/x86)

I try to implemnt "office" chat with jabber through the XMPP interface, so I added all my current employees (50) through a script. but some clients show the list (psi, pandion), some dont (pidgin, gajim) and when I try to modify the lest through the web interface, eg remove and add a user I get this error message:

"too many Contacts (Roster limit)"

furthermore, if I try to request or re-request and authorization then I get this error in the log file:

20:05:23.336 5 XMPP-000433([]) inp(43): <iq xmlns="jabber:client" type="result" />\n
20:05:23.336 5 XMPP-000433([]) s-out: <iq from="" to="" type="error"><error><forbidden /></error></iq>

I get also errors for "pings" (from pidgin).

Still, when I am logged in with any client, and another client can see the user at least as offline I can send a message to the user, but there is no way to get this user into the rooster list.

any comments about this?
