When we did Interop testing at the OSCon XMPP Summit, we had the following:

- a couple of switches (to isolate the traffic from the noise of the event)
- one laptop running DNS and a CA
- one person each responsible for setting up a stock XMPP server

Having the DNS and CA allowed for the testing to be done completely
isolated, the CA was required because we were testing basic and secure
c2s and s2s before we even got to BOSH testing which was the original

Not sure if having any internet accessible services would be handy,
but if it is I have registered xmpptest.com for use by the XSF for
whatever it wants.
