Thanks - that did the trick. I had originally updated the client
preferences to show just the host name but had not changed the jabber.xml
file. This is much better!

You do not need to use a FQHN to run or access jabber. As long as the
you select could be resolved on all of your client's desktops then you are
For example to run a Jabber server on a machine called "ace" do the
1) Configure jabber.xml so that jabber has the hostname "ace"
2) When running jabber, invoke it locally on the box "ace" with the option
3) Have users specify their server as "ace" in the client.
Their jids will be of the form user at ace.
That is all.
