Thanks that worked.
I can now log in as:
juid at daedalus or juid at mulligan or juid at 192.168.0.2 etc.
I can register on one node and then login on another.
As I understand it this already improves on the clustering provided by
other servers such as jabberd2 because you can have a juid available on
all machines on the cluster instead of on just one machine in the
cluster. Presumably the next step would be to do something like
round-robin dns http://hacks.oreilly.com/pub/h/79 so that all users of
the cluser go to user at jabbercluster and get allocated to a specific node
when they first make a connection. Is that correct or is there a more
elegant way to achive this effect?
