Memo from Martin P Burns of PricewaterhouseCoopers

Hola all

Hope we all had a good holiday season.

Here's something which annoyed the hell out of me while at home over the

I'm taking advantage of having a machine with all sorts of
(yes, I'm talking OS X) by having a play with Zope[1].

Now, I've got the server up and running, and can access it from the same
now I've set the machine name. So I access it with the URL http://mull/
(yes, I've turned off Apache and I'm running ZEO from port 80)

On the same network, I've got a couple of Windows boxes... they do know
about the Mac, because they're accessing shared folders there via Samba,
but they can't access the ZEO server, either by name, or IP address
(it's running at a reserved private IP -

I assume that I can shortcut providing DNS for the Mac by editing the
hosts files for the Windows machines and adding them, but how do
I get the Windows machines to access the Mac even by IP?

[1] I have a cunning plan - use Zope to manage a local copy of
my site, and upload it as (mostly) static pages to my public
webserver... also means that my wife can edit her pages with
ZWiki (http://www.zwiki.org) without me having to teach her about
HTML, FTP, Dreamweaver or any of that malarky.
