Grumble. The Dreamhost Jabbers servers seem to be getting worse. The problem is server-to-server connections. It's very hit & miss. Currently the Dreamhost servers are not talking to:
There have been many others over the past few months that seem to get disconnects. Almost as annoying is most of the time when you send a message to a user who is offline, the message doesn't get delivered, but echoed back to you.
Is it only me that are seeing these problems, or are other users experiencing the same issues?
I'm not sure if this is a bug in jabberd 1.4.2 or if it is some IP routing or DNS type issue with Dreamhost. I have a support call open for this but it doesn't seem to be getting anywhere.
If routing issues can be ruled out, maybe it is time to upgrade to jabberd 2.0? This is a complete Jabber rewrite, and has recently gone GA I believe.
