Subject [greenstone-users] XP weirdness and localhost
Hi all,

I exported a collection to CD-ROM (on Windows XP) but after
installation the homepage wouldn't display. I checked for proxies but
found none. Then I accidentally discovered that Greenstone was trying to
connect to <computer name> instead of localhost. The computer name was
JP12 but the host name of the user's PC was JP012. I changed it to match
the host name (JP012) and voila, problem solved. But if this happens
after distribution I have no control over it, so it would be nice to be
able to connect to 127.0.0.1 and avoid the situation altogether. The
problem is: how do I tell server.exe to connect to 127.0.0.1 (or
localhost or whatever)??

TIA

Rene
