The easiest way to measure this outside jabber is to count the number of
incoming connections to port 5222. You can do this by parsing the output of
netstat -a, but if you are familiar with snmp, use cricket and have an snmpd
running, the information is available there, too.

You can try querying:

where x.x.x.x is your external IP address, y.y.y.y is the other party and p is
the port their local port. If y.y.y.y is and p is 0 you found the
listen entry (value is 2), established connections have a value of 5.
