What are you asking about?  Your question doesn't parse with your
screenshot.

Connect on startup - will connect to the server when you start the
program, no further confirmation asked for.

Server - server address that you're going to use.

Port - port to connect to on it.

Location - where you are, not a hostname.  Jabber allows you to sign in
at several places at once, and stay signed in simultaneously.  You tell
them apart by this extra information (e.g. home, work, roaming in the
library, etc.).

Use system proxy - if you have a HTTP proxy set up system-wide, outside
of your instant messaging program, for all HTTP programs to use, this
client can use it as well by ticking the option.

Force older secure connection method - if you're connecting to an older
server, you may need to use this choice, or it mightn't let you log on
because it doesn't understand a newer one.

Ignore security warnings - the client can carry on and log in even if
the client determines that security is lacking (e.g. if the server's
certificate has expired, or not quite correct, or doesn't have one at
all, like the pop-up said), or it can abort when security is considered
lax.  Normally I would NOT pick this option, unless you could never log
on without it.  Because you'll be alerted to server hijacks by the
security warning.

Don't send private replies to my address, the mailbox is ignored.  I
read messages from the public lists.
