I have been trying to get Jigsaw 1.0beta running on a FreeBSD 2.1.5
machine running a port of jdk1.1.   While I realize there can be
several problems with this type of implementation, sice JDK is
only marginally supported on this platform and Jigsaw
has not been tested on it, It would very valuable for my research
to get this going. While the jigsaw and jigadmin servers seem
to start up fine, I am having trouble with the jigadmin client
application.

whiskey: {34} java w3c.jigadm.Main -root /usr/Jigsaw/Jigsaw http://whiskey.cs.tamu.edu:8009/

One obvious possibility is that it is having trouble with the awt because
we have only installed lesstif-0.81 rather than paying for Motif.
Nevertheless, I was hoping someone may have found a fix or
workaround for this. I am trying to run the jigadmin client
on the same server that the jigsaw and jigadmin servers are running,
on ports 8001 and 8009 respectively.

I was hoping that somehow the admin client could connect to its server
from a different host, one which does not necessarily have access
to the server's files on whiskey. Since we have JDK1.1.4 and Motif
on our Solaris machines, this would allow me to configure Jigsaw
remotely. Is that impossible?
