Hi all, I'm new to Alfresco and to this forum, so don't be too bad If I do stupid questions?  :)

I'have yet installed a Community Edition 2.1 on Linux through war file.

I have installed an openoffice 2.2 on the system (SUSE SLES 8).

Now I'm trying to make it works with alfresco launching:

./soffice "-accept=socket,host=localhost,port=8100;urp;StarOffice.ServiceManager" -nologo -headless -nofirststartwizard -display :1 &

I have two questions:

To be sure nothing was concerning with it, I've passed the register phase of openoffice both with root and with another user I want to use, but interaction beetween alfresco and openoffice,  works only if I launch openoffice as root.

If I use a different user to run openoffice, when I launch alfresco application, it remains blocked in the phase of open office test connection.

I need to launch it with the same user I launch the application under tomcat, is it possible?

Second one:

is it possible to tell to alfresco application openoffice is running to a different port (not 8100), and how can you configure this?

Thank you all for any response.

Bye
