Recommended Posts

does anyone know how to test CDML without internet access in osX. The help file in 6 describes it for win and os9 but not osX.

it works the same for me, but you might need to change the port number if you are running apache.

I just use 127.0.0.1:7500/foldername

AFIK? I do not see that option anywhere in osX network options. Can you explain how you got that?

WebCompanion does not function with OS X if you are not connected to a network.

This is a pain and was introduced at about 10.0.3

A way of tricking it to believe it is connected to a network may exist, however I haven't had a chance to research it yet frown.gif

If you have a spare hub and an ethernet cable attach those and give it a go!

Al the best.

Garry is spot on.

I did the test - all you need is a hub (powered up) and a standard ethernet cable.

I did a quick test use IWP to:

192.168.100.54:591

That's my IP address in our private network followed by the FMP "port".
