That configuration seems correct.

Also note that the Guide says [1]:

That means you will have to provide auth of some Jabber account inside
calls. All accounts are accepted, so in your case, an easy solution is
to create a dummy account in ejabberd like dummyxmlrpc at yourjabber.net
and then provide this in the XMLRPC calls.

There may be some way. The Windows installer of ejabberd includes the
compiler erlc, and also make.beam, and SVN of ejabberd_xmlrpc has

Maybe some Windows developer can give some additional hint, if there
is anyone out there.

You can also compile the files in Linux, FreeBSD, MacOSX, and copy the
beam to your Windows machine.

Not the same. Erlang binary files for ejabberd should go in a dir like
