I am using a branded version of MyJabber.

I have contacted the developer and am waiting for a reply from him but
wanted to know if anyone has heard of a Jabber client using this port
before.  From what Peter said it should not be using this port at all.
Maybe it is a typo.  I have ports 5222 and 5223 open on my Jabber server.
Do you think it would be necessary to open these ports in the Windows

My first impression is, it's a typo.
5686 is neither the standard port 5222, nor the SSL port 5223.

Do you use a mainstream client?
