I think we discussed this before.

This works with the Jabber 1.4.1 servers if the HTTP proxy in question keeps
the connection open (mainly transparent type proxies). But most proxies
close the connection after the response, so the client has to poll and
requires some kind of token session id, ... etc.

I assume that the http/wcs module that Peter mentioned solves this problem.
My wish is that the public Jabber servers support it, so that Jabber use
behind HTTP firewalls will be possible.
