I just wanted to let you know that there is now a very quick way to test 
  the ejabberd server. ejabberd is a Free and Open Source distributed 
fault-tolerant Jabber server. It writen mostly in Erlang, is very robust 
and easy to deploy and offer many features (See 
http://ejabberd.jabberstudio.org/ for more details).

I just release Erlang REPOS 1.0 beta 3. REPOS stands for Repository of 
Erlang-Projects.Org Software selection. It is a collection of major 
ready-to-use Erlang software. Erlang REPOS is distributed as a CDROM 
image (ISO). You can use every program included in the REPOS environment 
either directly from the CDROM, from your hard drive, or from a USB key.

Erlang REPOS includes Ejabberd and runs on Linux and Windows. You just 
need to launch the start.sh or start.bat script (or let the autorun 
feature do the work for you). You will then get an Erlang console and a 
You can launch preconfigured application from the Erlang console, 
including Ejabberd. Simply type the Erlang Shell command: 
(The last dot is needed)

Then use a Jabber client and point to localhost on port 5222. You can 
use the registration protocol to create users.

More details from:

You will be able to download the ISO image from there.

Please let me know if it works for you, or if you have problem using it.
I also need help to include a MacOSX version of Ejabberd binaries.

Have fun !
