I ended up editing the /usr/lib/viewvc/bin/standalone.py file on the
line specifying the binding:

  host = sys.platform == 'mac' and '192.168.xxx.xxx' or
'engineering-lx' # '127.0.0.1' or 'localhost'

After this I could see the repository through the basic ViewVC glasses
on my PC! Much improved view over the svn built-in Apache view :)

But standalone.py is not what I want to run anyway, so I need to plow
through the immense installation configuration to enable VieVC
integration into Apache2...
Or is there a quyick way to get the standalone.py version become the
way ViewVC serves out the repository via Apache2?

Note:
My CVS users are all working through the WinCVS application from the
CVSGui project that died about 10 years ago...

None is comfortable with command line work or Linux for that matter,
all are on Windows workstations.

So I need to give them some GUI style tools to convince of a migration
to Subversion. Maybe VisualSVN on Windows can fulfill this?
