The Jabber protocol is for the most part DNS-based; in that things need 
resolvable names if they are to be used by the outside world (through 
server to server), and that that components running within the system 
need to have separate unique names.

Make sure that conferencing is set up as a service within the jabber.xml 
file, and make sure you are creating a conference room on the component 
(ie., make sure the server-name is set to be the conferencing component 
and not the main jabber server)
