That's cause you really don't have to be a rocket scientist to figure that one out.

Private address is the IP address of the machine that is running the program. Note that this means that you need static IP addresses on your internal network. You need to Google search for the port number(s) used by Charracho as I don't know them

When have I replied to anyone asking for help. I don't know jack about the the mac os right now, so I surely would not give help,

I was referring to my question where macloc said to me...

"LoL ! thats cuz you really dont need to be a rocket scientist to look at the *utils* folder and find out that there are quiete helpful apps in there

ok, i opened the ports 6700, 6701 and 6702 (the ones that are required for the various things)... i am not sure if i did it the right way but i put the same for the upper and lower entries of the little box that appears and left the private address as it was... i still cant connect/administrator my server... any further help will be VERY greatly APPRECIATED !

thanks robbieduncan for a USEFULL comment !

my apologies. i recognized your name, and remembered the other thread where someone had responded in such a fashion to you (maclova) and thought it had been the other way around. in that case, you got what you deserved maclova.

sorry again zig
