As usual when I am a newbie in anything, questions always seem to take
two days to answer, and the answers are simple.

On my system, Netscape and Lynx use the port 8000 while the Medusa
default is 8080. The answer is: "http://localhost:8080/...". No
changes in system configuration or preferences files were needed.
