Modulo the NFS issue Ivan brought up, be careful. Performance will be
horrible if the server and client are on the same machine. I believe
it has something to do with the large number of fsync()s that need to
be done both by the client and server. While this by itself is not a
big deal, the various disk seeks kill performance.

Subject: Server and Client on same machine?

Is it possible to run the Coda server and client on the same machine? 
I achieved success in running a client on a replica server but I am
not able to acquire tokens using a client on the SCM.
Our purpose is to launch NFS in front of Coda.
