I am about to issue a CD containing a Greenstone collection, and I had a
friend have a look at it to check that he could install it easily on his
machine. One of his comments back to me was:

"The program itself is dangerous -- it hosts a local HTTP server on the
machine that is then accessible by anyone, not just the user/owner of
the program."

So I would recommend that people disconnect from the internet after
launching the program."

I know that quite a few getting a CD will have broadband / cable
internet connection - do I need to tell them to disconnect from the
internet when using Greenstone? - or is there something I should be
doing when writing the programme and collection to the CD?
