[jdev] How does transport works ?

Hi everyone,

       I am a jabber developer and I am really excited with the MSN
transport for the jabber server ! I wrote a component to, to add social
network in a intant messaging network before, and now I want to write a
transport, but there is something that I have no idea how transports

       How do they have multiple TCP connections ( for each jabber client )
to the MSN server at the same port at the same host ?

       I mean, let me know if I am right : for each jabber user that wants
to use the MSN transport, you must somehow connect this jabber user to the
MSN server, right ? So this implies that you are opening one TCP connection
from your local jabber server host machine ( actually your component is
doing this ... ) to the MSN server, right ? How do you do this ? I mean, as
far as I know, you can't have two (host, server, port) connections, right ?

       Well, sorry if this is a very dumb question, but I'm having problems
understanding how transports accomplishes this !

       Any help is appreciated,

       Cya, Sam
