OK - I'll buy that the wizard is the GUI used through a web browser -
that makes sense.

However, I executed 'ant start' within the directory at the console as
root, while tracking processes in a putty ssh terminal with top during
that execution. I noticed that java was running, but then the ant
process stopped on the console, and in top the java entry disappeared.
Testing after that, with netstat -a, revealed no port open other than
the usual smtp/ssh/ntp ports that I use on any machine.

Trying to connect with Firefox is unsuccessful at that point.

As you might surmise, I'm not familiar with ant or java, so am just
bashing about looking for clues.

Lastly for the moment, I noticed that I didn't have the JRE installed,
so I took the time to download that file and 'make install clean',
then execute 'ant install' and 'ant run', with the same results.

I have output from both 'ant install' and 'ant run' should anyone care
to take a look.
