Subject: Send Messages between two Servers and Clients
Hi,

I have a problem figuring out how to send messages between two clients on two different servers, all of them are self-written using the examples found in https://gitlab.com/matrix-xmpp/samples.

I know there is a static "Global"-class in the samples which holds a list of XmppServerConnections. But this "List" only knows the connection of its server itself, not the other one; which is correct, because the two servers and clients are seperate processes, why should they know eachother without telling them.

So how do I connect Client A and Server A to Server B and Client B?
Is there something like a "XMPP-Server-Service resolver" if I have the IP and Port Server A and B are bound to?

Hello,

are you referring to the server example?
This sample does not implement server to server connections. When messages between 2 different servers (xmpp domains) need to be sent, then servers create a server to server connection (s2s) between each other.
Those connection are described in the XMPP core protocols and extensions.

Why are bot using existing server software like Openfire, ejabberd, Prosody, Tigase and others? They have all implemented those features and run out of the box.

Hi Alex,

Using existing server software like the one you mentioned is something I want to avoid. I want to have my very own lightweight Client and Server.

Am I right that I have to implement s2s by myself and there is no function in the Matrix SDK?

yes, you have to implement it yourself. Its very similar to the client 2 server connection (c2s). All primitives you need are already in MatriX.
If you want to write your own server then I highly suggest to use MatriX vNext for it.
