[Spread-users] Error running spread

Spread isn't disconnecting because of the IP access control file... 
thats just a message to warn you, in case you /were/ planning to use IP 
access control.  The complaint that causes Spread to terminate is that 
your Spread configuration file doesn't contain the ip address of the 
machine you're starting Spread on.  Spread.conf specifies a number of 
things, including the broadcast/multicast address to use and the total 
possible membership for each segment in your Spread network.

It seems to be finding spread.conf in /usr/local/etc (one of the default 
locations besides the current directory), which may not be where you put 
your configuration file.  You can specify the configuration file to use 
on the command line with the -c option.

Also, if isn't the ip address that this machine is 
supposed to be running spread with, you might need to use the -n, to 
specify which processor name in the Spread.conf file applies to the 
machine on which you're running Spread.

If you need help with writing the spread.conf file, look at 
sample.spread.conf, or send some information to the list, including the 
current spread.conf you're using and the configuration you want.

Good luck,
