Yes, I am seeing many broken pipe errors myself. I originally suspected
that this was due to a bug in the net/io of the Java runtime on the
macintosh, but if you are seeing this on lynx too, then perhaps that is not
the problem at all.
It appears to me that the (persistant) socket is being closed prematurely
or that there is a (timing) problem within the socket close method (just a
guess).

There is no physical .html file in the Admin folder but the URL /Admin
should still bring up the administration resource page containing all of
the admin forms. If you get broken pipe errors just keep trying the link
over and over. I have found that I can *finally* get to every link in the
admin, configuration and the tutorials if I am persistant. I have also
found this problem (of broken pipe errors) is much worse whenever the
server and browser reside on the same machine (at least on the mac
platform). In this case many of the links are simply inaccessable.

No, not at this point. If I make any break throughs, I will pass them along.

Perhaps Anselm has some thoughts or suggestions here. sinc, -jeff
