Subject RE: Problems setting up remotely..

I had trouble getting this working and discovered that there's an error in
the web page documenation regarding the classpath.  Maybe others caught it
and corrected for it, but it took me four hours of putzing around.  Under
"Step 1" of,
the docs say:

"...Before running rmiregistry, make sure that the following jars are in
your system claspath:


The rmiregistry ..."

The last item, "logkit-1.0.1" should have a ".jar" appended to it.  Again,
the docs say they're all jars, so a person could figure it out, but I didn't
and spent four hours in a lesson about how to pay attention.  I had just
copied and pasted the paths and missed that little detail.

It might be good to correct that oversight.  Not sure how to direct this to
the documentation people or person.  If anyone knows, please advise....

rmiregistry has to be running first, and then start the jmeter server
(jmeter -s).  The system
classpath has to include the appropriate jars for rmiregistry, not for
JMeter.  Also note that
rmiregistry can sometimes leave processes hanging, even when it looks shut
down.  I have in
the past found that rebooting my NT machine to be the only sure way of
clearing such things
out.  If JMeter says rmiregistry is not running, it's pretty good bet it's
