No, it does not. I can not even run "ejabberdctl status" on stopped

I searched this and erlang mailing list, a 12 year old post (
http://erlang.org/pipermail/erlang-questions/2005-April/015269.html ) has
given some food for thought. The "ejabberdctl" command requires epmd
service running on port 4369, so in order to debug, I ran epmd in debug
mode and did these steps :

1. "erl -sname myname", the node started successfully and I can see log in
epmd terminal for this command.
2. "telnet 4369", successfully connects and I can see log in epmd
3. "telnet localhost 4369", successfully connects and I can see log in epmd
4. "sudo ejabberdctl status", gives the error AND I see no activity in epmd

So ejabberdctl is trying to connect to epmd but on what IP?

Then I did "vim /sbin/ejabberdctl", and found a variable
"ERL_EPMD_ADDRESS", which is definitely the IP that ejabberd is using to
connect to epmd service. But I could not find where it is actually defined.

That's where I am stuck now.
