Hmm… Well click the Test button and then from your other platform enter the IP of the machine with the IDE. Should work fine.

So is it the intention that this library is only available in the IDE, and won't be available for inclusion in a standalone, or for use from LCServer ?  (I can't see it in the list of inclusions in the SB, unlike diff, getopt, etc. - though that list is getting long enough that scrolling through it to see if something is there or not is becoming  inexact).

It should be in the list in dp-9.
