This will be included in the RFC I'm writing. Sign up for the standards
mailing list if you're interested in discussing it:


The latest version of the RFC draft can be found from the following
temporary URL:


I'll be adding more about server-to-server today or tomorrow, but it's
important to note that there really isn't much different (if anything)
about server-to-server communications beyond dialback. The XML chunks sent
back and forth between servers are really just the same chunks (messages,
presence, iq) that are sent from client to server and server to client.
When you send a message to someone on another server, your server adds a
from address to prevent spoofing, routes it internally to your server's
s2s component, dials up your friend's server, and sends off the packet (no
fancy envelopes or anything). So the protocol is almost exactly the same.
Anyone know of any other differences?
