Does jabber protocol work like smtp?


i am sysop on small internet company.

And i want to know if jabber protocol work liike smtp ,let s me explain :

if i have 2 jabber server one is example1.org and other example2.org

can user john@example1.org send IM to rocco@example2.org .

Does the server example1.org try to establish a connection to example2.org ?,

perhaps based with the mx record in dns .

I if it not do this my question is why ?

Sorry for my poor english .

And thank you for your answer .

I go to find some answer of my question over internet

Yes, as long as both servers support server-to-server communication, and the DNS is correct. Jive Messenger supports server-to-server communication.

Hey laradji,

Yep. We still need to write some documentation regarding s2s and external component support. Meanwhile, let us know if you are running into any kind of problem.
