Re: shigeoka.com telnet connection refused
Hi,

The examples in the book are examples. You need to find your own Jabber server and use telnet to connect to it - don't use "shigeoka.com". There are several people that run open jabber/xmpp servers on the internet, a good place to start looking is http://www.jabber.org

My pleasure. Since you're a java dev, you may want to check out the Jive Messenger server and open source Smack Java client library. Messenger has a free 10-user mode and you'll find Smack makes Java Jabber/XMPP development MUCH easier than coding it by hand:

Together they are a nice way to develop IM systems using Java even if you deploy against another Jabber/XMPP server.
