Thanks for your input, Wade, I tried using the exact settings you
mentioned in your mail, but I still get timeouts. I'll try starting
the frontend in Terminal (from within the bundle) some time this
weekend to see if tht yields any useful log data. (BTW: I'm connected
to the backend using 805.11g WLAN, but connection speed shouldn't be
the cuplrit, since my iBook uses the same method, and 0.20 works on it
just fine.)
