Any Jabber server and any transport connect with each other usually through external component protocol (XEP-0114). So all you need to do is to correctly prepare configuration for this protocol on both sides.
Continue reading to learn how to setup Tigase and PyMSN for working together…
There are a few basic parameters to set for this protocol:
Here is side by side configuration for both applications: PyMSN-t and Tigase to make them work together. I have setup both services on my laptop which hostname is test-d. To make sure both test-d and msn.test-d resolve to correct IP address I am adding entry to /etc/hosts file:
## In your case the IP address should be probably different. 192.168.0.13 test-d msn.test-d
Tigase server connects to MySQL database (or built-in XMLBD for simpler configuration variant).
I am not going to setup PyMSN-t to run in background as a system service. This is specific to the system you use and is covered in transport documentation and you operating system. Most of systems have own scripts to start services so I would recommend to use them. Here we just run it in foreground with full logging switched on to the console to make it easier track what happens.
