Add an s2s testing feature

Description

Add an s2s testing feature to the admin console. It would let you type in a domain name and test an s2s connection to it. If there were errors connecting, it would tell you. That would be very helpful for debugging server setup issues as well as firewalls, etc.

Removing the 'fix version' for all unresolved issues that were scheduled for version 7.8.2. We're releasing this version today - the remaining issues should be rescheduled later.

Richard has been working on this feature. As it is merged, there are a couple of issues:

  • A ping is used to set-up a S2S connecting. A packet interceptor is used to catch the response. This packet interceptor intercepts all traffic, not just the response to the ping. This leads to weird results if other traffic flows between both domains.

  • When there's a pre-existing connection, that connection is terminated before the test occurs. I think some clients pick up on this, and immediately re-establish the connection.

  • The pre-existing session isn't really closed - it's only removed from the routing table.

  • I had to search all over the place for this new feature, in the admin console

Suggested improvements:

  • make sure that the packet listener only intercepts the IQ result of the ping, or, prevent other threads from starting a new s2s connection while the test is running.

  • actually close pre-existing sessions.

  • move the test tool to "sessions" > "tools"
