You have to add the MSN transport at two different possitions in the 
jabber.xml configuration. Once within the <browse/> element of the 
session manager and once as a <service/>.

You see the transport because it is in your <browse/> section, but you 
can't contact it because the <browse/> section is pointing to a wrong 
domain or because your <service/> section is wrong or missing. 
Especially check the <host/> element and the id-attribute within your 
<service/> section.
