hi, i hope, i can post this time to this mailing list - had problems - 
nevermind ...


i use ejabberd with pyicq and i have a icq buddy, who can receive 
messages from me, but i cant receive any messages from him.

with the psi xml console, i saw the following: when he starts typing, i 
get this start-typing-event, like from others, too. when he hits return, 
simply nothing happens - no incoming xml message in psi.
what is special about him is, he is allways invisible and i am on his 
visible list - and - most important, i guess - he uses an older version 
of icq. i dont have the exact version in mind (sorry for that, i can 
investigate this). but it is about 2 years old.
another friend, using latest trillian, also invisible, i am also on his 
visible list, CAN send me messages without problems.
i myself can sucsessfully send messages to all.

what is special about my server?
i used ejabberd 0.9.8 with aim-transport. when i encounterd the 
described problems, i updated to a cvs version of ejabberd (16.10.2005) 
and pyicq (0.6) - so i changed the whole icq transport system, and still 
have the same problem.
my server is running debian sarge on x86.

if you have any suggestions, how i could solve this problem, i would be 
very happy (not receiving icq messages is really annoying - i currently 
run two messangers).
if you dont have an answer to this problem yet, i would be happy to 
provide you with further debug data. the server on which the ejabberd 
runs, is mine and i have root. the friend with whom i have problems, 
lives near me, and i visit him from time to time - so, i have full 
access to all involed systems ;)
