It doesn't work. I am using redirection by gandi.net, and if I direct
the query as indicated in the manual (hey, I read it!)
tony@hpd:~$ telnet domain-name.com 5222
telnet: Unable to connect to remote host: Connection refused
I went back to localhost, now
tony@hpd:~$ telnet domain-name.com.ip 5222
Connected to 188.8.131.52.
Escape character is '^]'.
Connection closed by foreign host.
But it is really not a big deal to me, since all queries will be
directed, with account already for them opened, with user, pwd, etc.

I got the create-user script (the only one I could find there)
Some comments aren't very encouraging. Do you know of any other script?

In several places they state that in the configuration files it should
say "jabber.domain-name.com" In other places it is not clear. Does it
mean that a whole subdomain must be established in the DNS records for
jabber? Or just localhost everywhere should suffice (at least in my
configuration case, w/o other servers communication)?

I completely agree with this. Just look at the very recent history for
