Re Reggie needs n/w connection?!

(I'm running Win2k,jdk1.3, Jini1.1) When I unplug the n/w cable and try to start reggie I get the "usual" CreateLookup.create-ActivationFailedException-BindException(set socket failed)

Your are right. I have just solved this problem on my W2K laptop by installing the loopback driver. This can be done in the add remove hardware control panel applet. Choose 'Add a new device' followed by 'No, I want to select the hardware from a list'
Then choose 'Network adapters' followed by 'Microsoft'

After you install this driver a new 'Local Area Connection' will appear in the Network and Dial-up Connections. Configure this and away you go!

You may also need to be a member of the administrator group for reggie to work.

A Warning:

I have not tried to connect the laptop back to my network since doing this but I assume that you only need to disable the new Local Area Connection.
