XSCE Smoke Test

This set of test cases represents a quick smoke test that a build should pass. Please [file bugs] in our tracker.

Results.

  1. Browse to http://schoolserver/activites and verify that the ones you installed are now available

Other Tests

Internal Gateway

From the XSCE terminal, do ifconfig and find the IP of the WAN interface. (For example, most home networks will give the XSCE's WAN an IP in the 192.168.x.x range.) From a computer on that IP range, as in your regular home computer, ping the XSCE's IP. Once you get a response, test ssh.

ssh admin@schoolserver.local
password: 12admin 

If schoolserver.local doesn't resolve, try to ssh in at admin@<ip address>

You can also try to resolve http://schoolserver and/or http://schoolserver.local from a web browser from the desktop on the WAN.

Ejabberd Web Interface

This isn't necessary for testing, but is fun to poke around in:

Register the admin user: ejabberdctl register admin schoolserver.local <password>

In a browser, go to http://schoolserver.local:5280/admin

The username is admin@schoolserver.local and the password is whatever you set above.

Using Pidgin to Monitor Ejabberd

When testing the XSCE, it can be helpful to see at a glance which XO clients have successfully connected to the ejabberd server. Pidgin is a cross platform XMPP client you can use to connect to the schoolserver's ejabberd server from any Windows/Linux/Mac computer. Connected XO clients will appear in the Buddy List.

In the Buddy List window, go to Accounts -> Manage Accounts. Click Add.

In the Basic tab under Login Options, enter the following values:

Protocol:  XMPP
Username:  yourname
Domain: schoolserver.local
Resource: pidgin
Password: yourpassword

Check "Remember password"

In the Advanced tab, enter the following values:

Connection security: Use old-style SSL
Connect port: 5223
Connect server: schoolserver.local

At the very bottom of the "Modify Account" window, check "Create this new account on the server." Click Add, then a registration box will pop up. Click Register, then you should get a pop up box that registration was successful. Click close. In the Accounts box, click the tick box in the "Enabled" column next to your username. If a box pops up for the server certificate, click Accept.

Now in the Buddy List, you should see the XOs that are currently connected to the XSCE's ejabberd server.
