    Two points:
      1. The correct grammar is tv=local:0   not 0.0 - it should not
         have chosen 3 since that is in use apparently (1,3,8,9) seem
         to be in use at present.
      2. You can run aips on your own machine so you should be using
         the Inet method which will have much better behavior.  Enter
         only aips and it should start the TVs on your machine.  If
         that fails, start aips on your machine directly which will
         start the servers there.  Then enter "aips tvok"
      2b. You could also look in /tmp for files named LOK.n.xxx,
          MSS.n.xxx, TKS.n.xxx, XAS.n.xxx and then choose an n that is
          not in use:  aips tv=local:n
          OR say aips tv=local and it will reuse the one you are
          already using.
