Subject Re: Installation problem

I am not too sure of the nature of Helen's comment there, perhaps it
is an old issue that has since been resolved.

I can confirm that our two main customer windows 2003 terminal
servers are quite happy for you to connect to localhost. We generally
don't though, prefering to put the hostname into the ini file that
forms the connection string, but I almost always use localhost when I
forget which server I am logged into, and have never had an issue
with that since January 04.

I am not sure about Citrix, whether it is an issue.
