Use Chimera to see servers via Rendezvous Web Browsers
Just noticed that Chimera now supports Rendezvous to allow you to see ftp and http servers on your lan. Here are the details on how to edit your user.js file to enable this feature.

You can also use SpeedChimera to enable this feature. It is under the advanced tab, the very last item.

Local Network Services not seen
Authored by: ptboya on Jan 09, '03 01:55:47PM

On my G4 Yikes running Jaguar all is well yet on my Ibook 600 running Jaguar "Local Network Services" does not appear in the "Go" menu of Chimera (latest build). I've matched all Chimera and System preferences and still nothing. Any hints?

I'm confused.

There are any number of web servers and ftp servers on my LAN, but the Rendezvous menu item is empty - not even my ibook appears there.

Is there something I need to do to turn Rendezvous on?

Turning on Rendezvous for your local Apache server

VersionTracker has the download of a mod_rendezvous module for the Apache (1.3) shipped with OS X. I downloaded it and it worked like a charm, it's even got a package installer so just click, click, click and your Web server is Rendezvous enabled! Very cool...

Quit Chimera first

You probably need to quit Chimera before you edit your prefs file, as Chimera will just overwrite it again.
