Running Mac 10.6.8 (Java SE 6) and Workshop 5.1.2.2 and connecting to Primary just fine - however trying to do the same with DD and DS gives a failure to connect - but just on Mac. From any of our Windows workstations the connection and functionality are as expected. Tried connecting from an older Mac 10.5.8 that uses Java J2SE 5 (in case Java is the issue) and still no dice.

Scoured the tech notes and forums with no info provided.

Anyone have insight to this error:
"Unable to connect to server"
The server name and/or port might be incorrect or there might be a problem with your network connection

For anyone who might find this useful - on a Mac, I couldn't use the Primary server name HW3XXX-XX and I had tried the IP address but still could not connect until I forced a port, in this case port 80. So in the server field I used LAN IP and port and connection made - like this 192.168.0.35:80 .
