When I start kisdnmonitor, it complains that it isn't able to log onto isdnserver
First make sure that isdnserver is running and that it hasn't displayed any error messages while
starting up. Then check if you're running it in "local" or "netmode".
Problems with "local" mode:
The communications between isdnserver and kisdnmonitor are done through a local socket, that means
that there's a file on your hard disk. Check if you have permissions to access these files. They
are located in the directory /tmp/.isdnserver/ (the "." before isdnserver indicates
that this file is hidden).
Problems with "netmode":
In "netmode" the communications are achieved through a network port, this implies that you must have
the rights to access that port. Software such as firewalls can block access to ports. Also check
if the port number you entered in kisdnmonitor's configuration matches the one of isdnserver's.
