It's connecting to jabber.com or to jabber.org? I'd think it's the
latter (unless you're using the newest version of the JIM client, which
tries to connect to update.jabber.com rather than update.jabber.org).
For an explanation of what's going on, check out the FAQ:




Also, please note the existence of the JADMIN list, which may be a more
appropriate place for discussions such as these (the JDEV list is
dedicated to issues related to development of Jabber software). You can
sign up for JADMIN at http://mailman.jabber.org/listinfo/jadmin/
