Tried uninstalling and reinstalling. Tried with default settings and changing server address from . to 127.0.0.1, at which point I can telnet to port 6000, though I'm not sure it uses TCP when it's local server. Does not matter because it does not work.
Check your tcp/ip address when connected to internet - Go to "Network Sharing Center" - Change "adapter settings". Right and chose "status", then "details" for your IP address. Or click on this link; http://tools.whois.net/yourip/ Add this address to your server .xml file and the client xml file (server settings) and save both files. Leave port to 6000, restart Nebula server and restart client - should work. Or disconnect from Internet and use 127.0.0.1. Hope it helps.
G mentioned somewhere that this version of server made settings controlled by client XML. What are the values that define the server in that file? SERVERADDRESS and SERVERPORT, right? And in the normal Nebula XML in my plugin folder with the DLL?
I only have one computer but have been trying to use the local server. It was recognizing clients although the performance was worse than just running Nebula as I would the pro version. But I like things to work. So when I fired up the server, then Reaper, added some Nebula instances.... The server says that there are no clients. I guess that means it's not communicating anymore...? Do I really stand to benefit from running it as a local server with one computer as opposed to using the server version as a regular insert? Thanks.
