Yes. The first 127.0.0.1 needs to be changed to 192.168.0.106 or the last
192.168.0.106 needs to change to 127.0.0.1 otherwise it will load as a slave.
The first box IIRC is a drop down box not a manual entry box. If
192.168.0.106 is not available for selection in that box you may have a
problem with your network setup?
I assume your first port = 6542 above is a typo and is actually 6543?
