TCP/IP and local kernel
I am currently using Mathematica version 2.2.1 on a Macintosh. I am also using MacTCP for internet applications such as the newsreader I use to post this. I have the front end preferences configred to launch the local kernel when I launch Mathematica. I notice when I launch Mathematica it attempts to make a TCP/IP connection. Is there anyway/preference setting to get the local kernel launched without having Mathematica attempt a TCP/IP connection? Please don't suggest disabling MacTCP. Although this would keep Mathematica from establishing a TCP/IP connection, it would also mean rebooting the computer to establish a TCP/IP connection for other applications. This is much less desireable than having Mathematica attempt a TCP/IP connection. -- "Against supidity, the Gods themselves contend in vain"
