I think part of my problem was that I was trying to do that, but the little jack is going to get hotter much quicker than the board.
So the solder was climbing down the hot metal on the jack and the board was probably just barely getting warm.
I am a bit nervous about getting the board itself warm, but I supposed that spot is designed for it..

What temp would you guys recommend?
