Hi. I’m reading the book (How to Build a Brain) and trying to set up Nengo on my MacBook Pro running Sierra (10.12.3 ). I’ve downloaded Anaconda and Nengo, and when I execute “nengo” from the terminal it fires up Safari, and I see three panes, but then I get the dialog box saying “Nengo has stopped running”. Trying to reload the page generates a message from Safari saying it can’t load the page
because it can’t connect to the server “localhost”. I know Apache, the web server, is running because I can put “localhost” into the address and I get “It works!”. I edited the httpd.conf file for Apache to add “Listen 8080” (so, listen to port 8080), restarted Apache, and when I tried “nengo” again I got the same response, except that the address bar was now pointed at localhost:8081, so incremented by one. I then added “Listen 8081” to the config file to check, and of course it incremented to 8082.
So I’m not sure what to try next. Any ideas?
