Re: Jabberd, AdiumX and TOR(reason for the crossposting..)

Ahh!! thank you for responding peter and suggesting that path for onion resolution , I will try it as a first step,
and yes my real desire is to solve this issue by socks5 resolution via library redirection so that tor can do the onion resolution as normal.

a tor operator

Hi all,
This was actually applicable to both groups. I have successfully been able to do the following

1. log in to a jabber server via adiumX using TOR as a transport and OTR encryption after logging.

2. run the c2s script of jabberd as a hidden service with a .onion address

I will update the tor wiki upon success.. question is has anyone else done this??

Yes, I've successfully run 2 hidden jabber servers (1.4.x), and had clients connect to them and chat to each other.

For the name resolution problem I chose to work around it by assigning
some special IPs from the link local ranges to my servers in etc/hosts
and mapping them back to the .onion names using tor's MapAddress.  For a
really decentralized system one would of course have to solve that issue
