Sorry that I didn't see your email before Milind, but it looks like you 
are telling sp_user to connect to the wrong port.  By default Spread uses 
port 4803 to accept client connections.  Your spread.conf uses the default 
and you can also see it here:

> Successfully configured Segment 0 [] with 2 procs:
>                      matrix:
>                    chanakya:

But then when you run sp_user you use a -s option, which instructs the 
program to connect to a non-default port.  In your case, you tell it to 
use port 2300.

> [milind at Matrix spread-src-3.17.3]$ ./spuser -s 2300
> Spread library version is 3.17.3
> SP_error: (-2) Could not connect. Is Spread running?
> Bye.

So either change your spread.conf to use port 2300 or don't tell sp_user 
to use a non-default port.  To do the former, change your spread.conf to 
look like this:

> 	Spread_Segment{
>        	matrix
> 	        chanakya
> 	}

To do the latter, simply don't specify a "-s" option to sp_user.

That should solve this problem.  Good luck!
