Why are you using port 3000? Are you sure that there is a process running on your machine that is listening on that port? In other words, when you mentioned "http://192.168.0.103:3000", was that something that was (and hopefully still is) working on your machine or you just used that URL to let us know what you are attempting to do? smx

Hi, Thanks for the info. I reversed what I had done and then used sysinstall. Going through sysinstall let me enter "beastie.gv.shawcable.net" as my host name. However when I try the following two url's i get and unknown host. http://beastie:3000/ http://beastie.gv.shawcable.net:3000/ Any other ideas?
