Hi, folks,

Newbie warning:  you may need to speak slooowly to be understood, as  
my UNIX skills are still nascent... ;-)

I've installed Calendar Server from today's trunk on Leopard desktop  
client 10.5.1 (not OS X Server).  It compiled fine and runs without

I can also connect via Firefox 2.x against http://localhost:8008 and https://localhost:8443 

So far so good.  Substituting for in both test cases work as  
expected, too.

information not found.  Connection to the server was  

Can anyone shed some light on why requests to localhost work but  
requests to my explicit IP fail?
