I think it's an unrelated /etc/hosts problem where the PC's FQDN is 
resolving to Jason Bell discovered and wrote up the solution in 
the above URL a couple of days ago. The AG3 ServiceManager on the other PC 
was being discovered (i.e. showed up in the combo-box menu), but he wasn't 
able to connect to it. The weird thing was that AG2.4 was working for him 
between the 2 PCs with one of them having the broken /etc/hosts.

I'm using DHCP on all the PCs I've installed Fedora on and haven't seen the 
broken /etc/hosts file described by Jason.
