B9 plugin was created to make Openfire (version 3.10.0 or later – a version compatible with Openfire >= 3.8.0 is available here) administration faster, allowing sysadmins to perform tasks directly from their preferred xmpp client.


You can upload B9 in plugins page of Openfire  web console admin. To update to the latest plugin version you can upload the new plugin without remove the old one.

Connection via socket

After version 0.3 you can open a connection on localhost port 4456 (default values) and send the same messages to obtain data.

To use socket connections you must enable the feature in plugin configuration page on console admin (default is disabled). In the same page you can change default port and ip address for binding.

Access restrictions

XMPP Messages: Only JIDs listed as admins can send XMPP messages to B9 plugin.

Socket Connections: If you are using socket connections, first you have to login with your password (defined in plugin configuration page on console admin). You just need to send the command:

login secret

Where secret is your defined password. After login you can send the same messages that you use in XMPP.

Known Issues

  • Adding servers to s2s whitelist or blacklist does not validate hostname as a valid name or valid IP address (same Openfire  behaviour).


  • Webservices.


You can download B9 plugin version 0.3.1 directly from Mundo Open Source. But if you are using Openfire >= 3.8.0, download b9 version 0.3 here.


Changelog information is available here.
