After that your component is simply an XMPP entity with a FQDN, and
packets addressed to that FQDN are routed to the component, that's
all. If you want to send a packet from [user@]component.example.org,
just write it in the connection and it will be routed by the server,
and incoming packets are routed as well, then it's up to the component
to handle them. In respect to components the server is just a dumb
router of packets, and it's not responsible for session management.
Anyway that's all theory, imho the best way to understand what happens
is to sniff the traffic of a gateway while trying to register.
