Every time I start Paraview from the terminal with the paraFoam command it tries to connect to servers that are non existent. This may take minutes! I tried to find the server.pvsc files that are described in the Paraview wiki but can't find them. I use the compiled OpenFoam 1.7 version of the ETH Zurich (http://www.ifd.mavt.ethz.ch/educatio...foam/of-macosx)
I found a temporary solution: (Thank you Bruno). Instead of starting via paraFoam, start paraView. When I use the recent file option ParaView does not try to connect to non existing servers.
