  If you change line 163, in the function resolve(char *name) from:

t = lookup_gettransport(inet_ntoa(*addr));


t = transport_connect(name);

  Your server will now be able to resolve external servers, aka, jabber.org and

them as I should be able to do, along with getting/sending status information.

  Bear in mind, with this fix, you will be able to message them, but they will 
NOT be able to message you back unless the other server also has this fix.  It
