Like a title.

Have auto-respond feature?

I can't found this feature in Citadel.

It can be done via sieve rules; in webcit go to Advanced->View/edit server-side mail filters


-> if 'All ' (All messages) 'Vacation' ...

I notice the download section does not have a link for a RPM package.

Have you stopped working on RPM packages for openSUSE?

Subject: XMPP clients hanging on "connecting"

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Hey there,

I'm trying to connect pidgin to the XMPP service, with a self-signed certificate running on the server (i generated the certificate exactly the way it's described on your FAQ page).

Unfortunately, I can't get past the "connecting" status, even though when I login through webcit as an admin, it shows me that the XMPP account is "online".

The same happened with Thunderbird's XMPP client.

I've followed the instructions on your FAQ page and checked the "Allow plain text auth over unencrypted streams", and chose "Use encryption if available" on the connection security (the latter isn't in your FAQ page, perhaps it relates to an older pidgin version).

Any idea why the XMPP client(s) can't proceed with the connection?


Thanks in advance and admirations for the great work!

Additional info:

When I use Thunderbird, and try to connect to my Citadel's XMPP on localhost, it tells me that the certificate is untrusted, asking me to add an exception for it. When I go to the "Add Security exception" screen, I can see the certificate with the "View" button, but pushing the button "Get Certificate" (from localhost:5222) makes Thunderbird to freeze.

I found this old-ish article, where in the chapter "Hacking Citadel: The XMPP Server Lacks SSL", mr. James Carter gives some explanation, but I am unsure whether this is still the issue and whether it is related at all.

I also tried changing the XMPP port to 2222, to avoid potential collisions, but ended up with the same result.

for webcit to use ssl simply provide -s flag to webcit executable to
change port use flag -p
example command that i have systemd run:
/usr/local/webcit/webcit -d -s -p2443

/usr/local/webcit/ is where i have my webcit installed
inside it is a folder called keys which contains all the keys
/usr/local/webcit/keys # ls
citadel.cer citadel.csr citadel.key

i don't remember where keys came from i just compiled citadel my self i
think they got generated when i first ran webcit with ssl "-s"

to use SSL for the citadel components also.

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Ok then, some updated comments after more tries.

I did a new installation using repo and got more errors and also messages
like this after every restart of citadel:

"The Citadel server process (citserver) terminated unexpectedly."

"This could be the result of a bug in the server program, or some external

I seemed to lack some file "7" under /etc/citadel/netconfigs that was
being mentioned in logs somewhere.

Did some trying to save dump files but couldn't get it to work so I
stopped doing that to save time.


When instead trying to use the "Easy install" method on a NEW system with
Debian 8.1 amd64 the install ran through all stages without errors.

However, when looking at the install afterwards some issues appears.

Logs in system says: "citadel should not be configured to run as root!
Check the value of c_ctdluid"

And indeed when checking ps it seems that citadel is running as root, I
think the earlier installations I did ran as "citadel".

The file being mentioned above now exist but in
/usr/local/citadel/netconfigs instead. Many things seemed to be owned by
root but also groups lika staff is seen.

Why did this happen? I did some googling and found others to have
experienced similar things earlier.

How to fix? Change owner of files/folders directly or some other way? Fix

Where is the "c_ctdluid" mentioned in the log message to be found?

There is also this msg being mentioned in console: "configuration setting
c_port_number is not -1 (disabled) or a valid TCP-Port - check your
config! Default setting is: 504"

But I am absolutely certain that I left no part of the configuration empty
during the Easy install script installation procedure.

Anyone have any in input?



I have looked at Citadel earlier but never tried it. Now I installed it
and after having started to learn the various concepts and features I
think it looks really nice. And it has a number of useful features that I
would like to use.

I'm on Ubuntu 14.04 and latest version from repo.

I have a few problems with the setup though it seems.

I set up a number of rooms as RSS Feeds and some of them work and update
as expected but some dont at all. They are all set up in the same way. All
RSS URLs work in browsers.

Are there limits or issues I need to be aware of with feeds?

I also set up a few rooms with POP3 remote retrieval (internal mailserver)
and I got some emails over but then for some reason no more emails comes
over, despite more is coming into the pop user.

Also I did a session log inside the pop server and it shows Citadel pop
client is logged in, password ok, listing is received with a number of
emails waiting etc. A number of UIDL commands are sent but no RETR.
There's an OK from mailserver, there seems to be no errors in syntax etc.

I first used setting to save mail on server but changed and also removed
entry alltogether and added again, still couldn't get all emails down.

What am I missing here?

BTW I had to manually add the folder "/etc/citadel/netconfigs" before I
was able to save the remote retrieval settings at all.

Maybe I'm missing something else that for some reason is not configured
correctly with the repo version?

Any comments on any of the above appreciated.

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Well, ok, there we go again ... (hopefully for the last time) ...

After messing around with alternatives like ApacheJames and Postfix I completely reinstalled my server again with a fresh clean OpenSuSE 13.2 x64. As reading about Tumbleweed I thought about using this fork and the available repo ...

And guess what happend? YES ! It finally worked again, as smooth as ever. Ok, now I have to re-configure all settings and re-add my certificates ... but nevermind.

I know the risks of the Tumbleweed-fork as it's something between active Factory-development and stable - and some packages may need a manual downgrade to stable ... but overall currently it's running fine.


I just wanted to let you guys know what could maybe a possible solution ... but be aware : AT YOUR OWN RISK !

Yea, I know, pushing is not the best way to keep a topic up on the top, but sadly I still didn't got any response to my question.

But nevermind. As some friends of mine showed me some disadvangtages of citadel while I tried to fix this problem and also tried to setup other groupware systems I now decided to use a simple Apache James and some cheap forum-software to bring my site back up alive again.

Sorry to leave you guys, but there are better solutions than wait for a fix.

Hi guys,


I am having hard time to setup the pop3 server. I finally found out that I need to goto "advanced -> Edit or delete this room -> remote retrieval". And now I am trying to add a pop3 host but it returns an error like this:

Higher access is required to access this function. Higher access is required to access this function.


What should I do in order to get through this problem? 


Thanks in advance!!
