DTCP and IBB are two different protocols. DTCP uses direct client to 
client connections, IBB transfers the data inband with the XML stream.

... and I don't think that you are able to stream MP3s with IBB on any 
of the public servers. Karma will prevent you on every public server to 
stream music through it.

With a good implementation of HTTP (using GET and PUT) and 
helper-servers at the Jabber server you can use HTTP transfers and don't 
need to setup a port forward or your own HTTP server. You will just 
click on "send file" in your client.
