Dash (-) in jabber chatrooms makes the connection fail

Description

I get this error while trying to join a chatroom with a dash in the name (fake domain and room names):

Error joining groupchat chat-room@…/aleksi2: not-authorized: Password required to enter this room.

join_chat 1 chat-room@… &channel aleksi2 pw

This is the second time this has happened, earlier also with a chatroom that had a dash in its name.

Hrmm, the dash in the room name is definitely not a problem. I use BitlBee to attend a room with a dash in its name for almost three years already.

The code for joining password-protected rooms has been a bit unreliable for a while. In 1.2.[45] it should definitely work. You add the room using "chat add" and then join it using "/join #room password".

Please let me know if it works. If it doesn't, can you give me an xmlconsole dump?

Hi,

Thanks for the reply. I don't have the "chat add" command on my bitlbee version, is there an alternative? I'll take a look at the xmldump.

It's a per-account setting. You need to use "account set".

And as I said 1.2 is too old. Please try to upgrade to 1.2.4 or 1.2.5.

Just let me know if this is still causing troubles.

With recent BitlBees this should definitely work:

chat add [account] [roomname] #channel
/join #channel [password]
