 OK. Must do that. Don't want other poor users getting confused :)

 In the end I'd to use strace on etherxd to see that it was writing out an
error like "Don't know server hercules..." - no idea where it thought it
was writing it to - I don't think it was in any of the log files...

 etherxd you mean ? Yes, very sure. Dead as roadkill that's starting to
smell funny.

 Ah. Another clue. Etherxd is saying:
Wed Nov 24 16:00:48 1999  debug/auth:90 SVC_BASIC: auth result illegal/Invalid Authentication Query

 However the password/username is definitly correct, and the cabbar client
thinks it's being logged in...these logins were working earlier. Bar
./jabber-transport/var/jabber, is there any data files kept around that
could have been corrupted (except the xml files) ?


Microsoft. The best reason in the world to drink beer.
