You installed on Linux, and pported the files, Right?

I would expect it to accept the serial number as that is contained , encrypted, in the install files,

BTW, The Trial verersion is a full enterprise version, that reverts to a 2 IP enterprose version (called the developer version) after 30 days if you don't supply a serial number.

So, the CD version and the Trial/Developer version are both the same.

JRun 4 is another issue -- your best chance is to do a Linux install and attemtto port it.

I hope you realize that then Mac CFMX port won't run on JRun.

JRun uses a different version of CFMX called CFMXJ2ee that is designed for JRun and several other J2ee application servers.

If you are successful porting JRun from Linux to Mac OS X, then you could install CFMXj2ee for JRun on Linux -- likely the ear deployment option.

Then transfer the ear file to Mac OS X.

Your best chance of success may be to manually unzip the ear file, unzip the resulting war files and the manually deploy the resulting applications.

A lot of work -- and it may not work.

There are a lot of advanced features in JRun -- clustering, failover, etc, that will likely not work in the ported product.

AFAIK, you can't connect to Apache, because the connector is written in Intel-specific C.

If this is what you are after, you might be better served (pun intended) by attempting to deploy your CFMXJ2ee port on Tomcat. -- i
think you need the war files for that.

That's as much as I know about getting either of these ported to Mac OS X.

Let us know (maybe write an article)
