They told me to use localhost as you suggest.
But "that suggestion" should be in the notes to give newbies
like myself some clue as to what they are on about and
at least vaguely what it looks like?
They should say something like typically this is "localhost" but
check with your host . . . blah blah.
Thank you for your help though Neil and your information was
quite correct although I don't totally understand your access on
your local machine and you sound like your on a PC I'm on a Mac
anyone who says Macs are easy to use is having themselves on ?
But aren't all computers COWS ?
