    Setting Up Contribute On A Local Test Machine

    ngcadobe
      I just set up contribute on a mac OS/X system and kept getting the messages :

      contribute cannot connect to website and contribute cannot verify your connection information

      My problem when setting up a connection every time I tried to use localhost as the url to the site contribute could not find the site. Well, after going through site after site looking for a solution, I finally figured out the problem. My MAC is on DirecWay and I use a web proxy. So, I finally figured out that if I went into my network settings and put in 127.0.0.1 in the bypass proxy field -- everything worked!

      I just wanted to post this so the next sap like me might be able to resolve this problem on their machine without searching the web for hours on end.
