Tigase, BOSH, JSJaC: invalid response (12152)

I have a Tigase server with clients connecting to it via JSJaC over HTTPS. I have about 1/6 of the users reporting "invalid response (12152)" immediately upon connection and repeatedly thereafter, but can send and receive messages. Based on the timing, it would seem to be the BOSH connection maintenance. This seems as though it could be webserver configuration related, so I've included it below. As you can see, I used your recommended config complete with comments and adapted it slightly. I would also note, these are corporate users that could very well have proxy and/or firewalls affecting traffic in some way. Any ideas what could cause this error?

I am afraid, without a good research it is impossible to tell what is going on. How many online users do you have?
This may be something related to operating system configuration where the HTTP proxy works. If you use any Unix/Linux based system check maximum number of opened files set for the HTTP proxy user, check also number of TCP/IP ports available to the machine.
Check system logs if there is any issue with traffic throttling. Sometimes there is kind of firewalling system installed which may "think" machine is under DOS attack and tries to block some traffic. Also Selinux settings may affect the service.
Here are 2 articles worth reading:

  1. Linux settings for high load systems
  2. Basic system checks

I hope this helps.
