Yahoo transport domain name **workaround**

I have been experimenting with the Java based Yahoo(!) transport. Like everybody else, my server name is domain.com and not wildfireserver.domain.com, which interferes with the Yahoo(!) transports’’ ability to register itself. To work around the registration issue, do the following:

In config.properties set:

xmppserver=YourDomain.com

In your HOSTS file add or modify the localhost line to read:

127.0.0.1 localhost YourDomain.com

I was a little weary to do this at first, but so far it hasn’'t harmed any of my other running processes.

YMMV
