Subject Re: CouchDB Web Server access on a LAN.

Hi Cliff,
Thanks for that. Pity I wasn't able to find this for myself. :)

I tried adding the PC's Hostname and Erlang wasn't happy. I noticed
the Werl window mentioned etc/local.ini so I opened that and changed
the Hostname to the IP address and it works as I wanted.

Do you know if a Hostname should work for the bid address?
