[JDEV] server <=> server question

a) did you install the patch on both jabbertransports?
b) are you certain the sending machine can resolve the other server?

A quick test of B would be to login to the account hosting the sending
jabbertransport and type "ping <domain name of unresolvable server" and see
if it can actually resolve it. Just because a client can resolve and contact
a server doesn't mean the transport can.
