You should also try to chat between two regular desktop clients,
to be sure the problem is in the http-poll part.

Preferable: http-bind. Search for BOSH in the XEP names:

http-poll: this protocol is deprecated:

You could try also with ejabberd 2.0.1.

If you already have 1.1.4 running in production, you can test 2.0.1 in
other machine to verify if that helps or not.

Note that ejabberd 2.0.x includes an embedded mini web server, so you
don't need an external server if you don't want. Check the related

Yes, set in ejabberd.cfg loglevel to 5. But probably it will be too
much verbose.
And that option is available since ejabberd 2.0.0
