Hi I am a beginner and have been running Jigsaw on my Laptop running
win95 and Java 1.3 for a while now . I use Jigsaw to learn servlet
programming .

Everything was going great till yesterday when I realised that my  cable
modem connection was down and I was not connected to the internet when I
started Jigsaw.
The server refused to start and gave a Fatal error saying it did not
know what where [host] was.And it failed to start on
http://localhost:8001 where it normally starts.

Also when I tried to start jigsaw with the -host option i.e 
java org.w3c.jigsaw.Main -root -host 127.0.0.1 
It responded with unknown option host.

I tried running the java Install command and tried restarting the
server, but it refused to ininitialize untill my internet connection was
restored.
I was able to start it up just fine  once my internet connection was
restored with the usual command which does not contain the -host option.
Does all this mean that I cannot run Jigsaw without an internet
connection.
If not, how do i configure it to start without an internet connection so
I can just use it to serve documents on my computer alone.
All suggestions/inputs will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks
