Groupchats go through transports that support groupchat (the
groupchat-transport, yahoo, IRC and any others I missed). You can't just
start a groupchat without going through one of those transports. IMO WinJab
shouldn't let you type in the name of a server because the only servers you
will be able to connect to are those the server admin has setup and those
will be listed in the drop-down menu. Pick a groupchat server from the
"Server:" drop-down menu. Type in the name of the group and the nick you
want to use.
To set up a general "jabber users" groupchat, get the groupchat-transport
(from CVS or the tar-ball). Build and install it then add a new block for it
in the <agents></agents> block of jserver.xml. To get groupchat as an
option, remember to add <groupchat/> to the list of commands you can send
