Hello Dirk-Jan,

Apparently sendxmpp is not RFC-compliant! See the attached bug report.

Met vriendelijke groet / with kind regards,

Package: sendxmpp
Version: 0.0.8-1
Severity: important

sendxmpp doesn't support DNS SRV records, as is required by the XMPP
RFCs, and doesn't have any other way of handling a Jabber server that
runs on a different host than the primary domain host.

For example, I want to run Jabber for example.com so that my users'
JIDs are [email protected], but the A record of example.com is not the
host that the Jabber server is running on. No problem, I add in a few
DNS SRV records:

_xmpp-server._tcp.example.com. IN SRV 5 0 5269 jabber.example.com.
_xmpp-client._tcp.example.com. IN SRV 5 0 5222 jabber.example.com.

According to the XMPP RFCs, clients must handle this, as this is a
common, and in most cases, preferred setup (most sites don't want
JIDs like [email protected])

Unfortunately, there is not even a workaround with sendxmpp, as if you
change the server with the -j option, it will also use that hostname as
the Jabber domain when talking to the server, which of course then
doesn't match and fails.

This bug is important because in this common configuration, sendxmpp
does not work at all, coupled with the fact that there isn't even a
good workaround.
