[protege-discussion] connecting for Protege Collaboration

Host Machine Name is the hostname (or IP address) of the machine on  
which you have run ''. Make sure to run that on  
only 1 of your 2 machines.

As part of the set up of the Protege server (the one that's run the  
''), you need to configure a Protege project  
called the metaproject. By default, the Protege server looks in:

<your protege install>/examples/server/metaproject.pprj

for the metaproject. So, you should open this and set it up as  
required, using the Protege GUI.

The Client-Server tutorial is very helpful:

In here, you will define the usernames and passwords that you'll use  
in that connection dialog. Also, you will tell the Protege Server  
which projects you want it to serve. Make sure the one that you want  
to collaborate on is setup in here, and is located on the server.

You shouldn't need to worry about the port settings if you leave  
everything as default.

Hope this gets you guys going. Let me know if not - and how you get on!
