Hello Troy,

as far as I recall, Coda servers are endian-dependent, in the sence that
you cannot mix different-endianness servers in the same volume replication
group. May be it is still possible to use them in the same realm,
while avoiding volume replication between them.

(Servers send log information to each other, and it is pretty much in its
internal representation)

It looks like either some network misconfiguration,
or the server does not answer.
