Hi!

If you try to connect to ejabberd 1.1.2 using Centericq you'll only get an
error 503.
That is an old and known bug of Centericq
(http://article.gmane.org/gmane.network.centericq/4114).
That bug doesn't appear with ejabberd before, as until 1.1.1 ejabberd sends
an error 501 - so Centericq connects.
This has been changed, because the specs tell, that in this case 503 should
be used. (Which is IMHO debatable, because 501 is more natural in this case.
503 means (for me) that the service works but is unavailable now.)
There is a patch for Centericq
(http://www.dtek.chalmers.se/%7Ehenoch/centericq.patch).
If you want to change the behavior of ejabberd instead, you have to
change line 558 in ejabberd_sm from ERR_SERVICE_UNAVAILABLE to
ERR_FEATURE_NOT_IMPLEMENTED and rebuild it.
