@Hubzilla Support Forum+
Day before yesterday I started a chat on one of my hubzilla servers, and added a connection from a friend on another server. I sent him a link to the chat, and when he hit my server it gave him authentication denied messages. He was logged into his account on another hub in another tab, usually this authentication just works.
I had added him as a connection, and he was authorized for the chat, coming in from a different server on a newly created account. Is there some time frame or syncing issue that would keep him from authenticating right away? I was not sure what to tell him and eventually he just gave up. Not sure if there is something I was missing here in how to get him authenticated for the chat session, does he need to be clicking the link from inside his hubzilla tab where he is logged in, or is being logged in somewhere in another tab enough? I sent him the link out of band, and I am still not 100% sure about how the cross site authentication is working, should I have sent him the link through hubzilla to the other account? Does that matter?
