It's been a few days I can't connect to my XMPP account anymore or really randomly.

From my phone (with yaxim) I get ECONNREFUSED. Sometimes it suddenly connects when I change of Internet access.

From my computer I get this on gajim:
06:29:52 (I) gajim.c.connection >>>>>> Connecting to dukgo.com [dukgo.com:5222], type = plain

I have friend who report me that the server is "down". I guess it's possible they have the exact same issue.

I just tried with the login access provided by signing up in this forum, and I tried with pidgin:

Weird--I connect with Pidgin just fine. So to clarify, connecting straight to xmpp.dukgo.com is working over a normal connection but not over Tor?

Sorry for the confusion, I used Tor yesterday to bypass a NAS but it is not related at all with Tor. With or without, if I don't use xmpp.dukgo.com, it works in a really random way (it's definitely not usable).

It seems that changing of connection get me this error easily.

We can make some test whenever you want if you want.

OK we just moved to a Multi Domain certificate, and changed the A record for dukgo.com back to this server. Hopefully, this should resolve your connection issues. Please let me know if you're still having problems!

It's been a few days now I'm using dukgo.com normally and everything works perfectly. Thanks for the great service!

Fantastic! I'm glad to hear that :)

Huh, I randomly tried the trick from here:

Changing the server to: xmpp.dukgo.com

And now it works fine everywhere. But I wasn't using Tor network and I'm sure it used to work from time to time....

Really random issue...
