The problem you are having is partly due to a client issue.. you are connecting to as your server name (in the client) but you have your server hostname set to "Hal", since it cannot find the host "" internally, this is why you are getting configuration erros..

One way to fix this would be to connect to the server name "Hal" in your client, the other would be to add the tag: <alias to="Hal"/> into the config section of the "c2s" service.  this will allow for this type of Proxying, converting all "" to "Hal" in the server name...  although, I don't believe this has been fully tested, so let me know if you go this route, and it still doesn't work for you.

The error message I am receiveing (When running in Debug mode), indicate a server configuration problem.  Here is a little more information about my situation.  I have a private LAN set up, so my IP addresses for my machines are,, etc...  I am running the server on a RedHat Linux 6.1 on one of these machines.  I have tried to use clients on both windows and Linux to connect to the server.  Right now, I am still new to Jabber, so I do not know much about the configuration.  I have attached the output of debug mode (bwise.log), as well as the xml configuration file (jabber.xml).  Please let me know if you need any more information.  Thank you.
