we have deployed an xmpp gateway and we believe it is configured corectly. have external DNS set up can talk to our ocs edge etc etc can telnet to our xmpp gatewayfrom the internet to port 5269 and can also telnet to the 4 google talk servers OK.

so I have a regular google account for testing purpose
in googleapps or the google talk client I invite a user from this company xxx@ocsdomain
on google I see the name and it says invited  we never receive anything or see any traffic to our xmpp gateway. is there something special that needs to be done within google to be able to chat with a user on yahoo,msn ocs etc to get the invite to be sent? so I guess from the GTalk app can I add contatcts outside of google like we can with OCS

    Review this TechNet article:

    There are a handful of steps, I'm thinking first verify you have all the internal/external nodes configured such as EDGE server,static routes, etc.
    Then check your public DNS as per this article.

    we have verified all that and OCS has been working fine. what I am asking is since I have now deployed the xmppgateway from a GoogleTalk chat window with my gmail account should I be able to invite an external (non gmail client ) to a chat session? on the google side all I see is the user is invited and my ocs user never gets the invite. my environment works fine for all the federated ones

    so is there anything needed extra on google to be able to invite a non google participant I tried adding a test yahoo and MSN account and I see the same results it shows as invited. I never see a request hitting our firewall from google with the invite from googletalk

    I have seen that article
    we have an external cname record external that matches our xmpp server name and the xmpp srv record on the internet I can telnet to 5269 on my xmpp gateway I can also telnet from xmpp to the 4 googletalk servers. if you believe that article I should be able to invite a user from the GoogleTalk client I have tried that and when we try it we never see anything on the firewall or the xmpp server with a request from google
