Hi Salman, 

I have tried developing a Jabber Client in VC 6, I used JabberCOM
(http://jabbercom.sourceforge.net/) for this, but JabberCOM is
discontinued and have svere bugs in its connectivity code, specially
when behid the firewall/proxy, which are infact related to underlying
Indy Socket controlls used by JabberCOM.

So I switched to Iris (http://delta.affinix.com/iris/), Psi also uses
Iris, and I think its the best available there for C++ based Jabber

You can find a list of all available libraries here:
