Thanks Daniel. I visited the page linked and tried the nslookup suggested with
following results :
C:\Users\Standard>nslookup -type=srv _xmpp-client._tcp.gmail.com
Serveur : 188.8.131.52.dynamic.sat.abo.nordnet.fr
*** Aucun enregistrement Service location (SRV) disponible pour _xmpp-client._tc
As for the rest of the article on that page, it all seems beyond my pay-grade.
I don't have OpenWRT and I never had any configuration to do on the router as
far as I remember. The router was supplied by my isp when I took the broadband
by satellite package. I just had to plug it in with the router and go.
The router is badged by the isp but is a small Linksys WRT54 box. I have no
info on how to access its config let alone change it.
The result of the nslookup seems to indicate a server belonging to my isp
(nordnet.fr). Is this problem something I will have to take up with the isp ?
