It seems I may have left out an important piece of information regarding configuring the controller. I assumed the default authentifcation method was 'None', when it may actually be 'Password'.


If you want to start a controller without password authentification, you need to edit the controller configuration file, which is /Library/Preferences/com.apple.xgrid.controller.plist. Change the authentication method to None, and then restart the controller with the command sudo xgridctl c restart (or start if it is not running).

    I wish Safari text boxes had automatic spell checking ... 'authentification' is not a word. Please read 'authentication' in my previous post.

      Try enabling "Edit->Spelling->Checking Spelling as You Type".

        Thanks...now everyone knows not only that I can't spell, but also that I'm ignorant of Mac OS X features :-(
