Re: [R] Snow/Snowfall hangs on windows 7

Same problem as Anna here.

Windows 7 64-bit. Running R 2.13.0. snow + snowfall installed.



sfInit(parallel=TRUE, cpus=2, type="SOCK")

Then R spins forever (yes, I disabled the Windows firewall).

On the same box, tried the same on Ubuntu under Virtualbox. No problem. Runs well.

Any suggestions/ideas appreciated.
