 Yeah, not much we can do about a router (or ISP) that filters SRV queries
 out. You might try setting your local dns servers to or

 Alterantively, set the correct "connect server". See this:

 >(11:01:17) dnssrv: querying SRV record for goonfleet.com: _xmpp-
 >(11:01:17) dnssrv: Couldn't look up SRV record. No records found for
 given DNS query. (9501).

 You can do this query manually with the "dig" commandline tool:

 $ dig SRV _xmpp-client._tcp.goonfleet.com


 _xmpp-client._tcp.goonfleet.com. 21599 IN SRV   10 0 5222 jabber-

 So set your connect server to "jabber-server.goonfleet.com"
