    Hi Saravanan,

    first there is a update of Java GUI 6.30 rev 10 for MacOS 10.3 (Panther) available or a 6.40 version for MacOS 10.4 (Tiger).

    You have to do no special configuration to connect from a Mac.

    If you connect to the server via a JavaGUI on Linux, etc. just use the same configuration and connection string for Mac OS X.
