Well, I'm opening this thread because I'm of the opinion, that the Jabber protocol discussions and questions need a central home. When I first visited this board I was quite astonished, that there are threads for nearly every Jabber Mod (GTalk, GMail, Meedo, etc.), but not for the original Jabber protocol. And as a consequence jabber knowledge is spread over hundreds of threads in Help and Feature Request Subboards.
My first question:
Why doesn't Jabber protocol retrieve my external IP adresses automatically for direct Filetransfer? If i want to set up a FT I always need to get my IP manually and copy and paste it to the Jabber protocol configuration. That's not very comfortable.
And hey, I mean, as MIM is capable of UPNP it should be really easy to integrate IP retreiving into Jabber. UserInfoEx for example is also capable of this feature.
