I have bitcoin running on ubuntu, and I have port 8333 forwarded to that computer's NAT'd IP address.  I understand it would be best for me to instruct my Mac OS X machine to connect through the ubuntu machine using "bitcoin -connect=IP ADDRESS" - how exactly do you do that on a Mac, since those instructions appear to be a windows command line switch.

Can I just point to /Applications/ -connect?  I tried that and it never got a connection.

Easiest way would be to put it in the bitcoin.conf file.

Create $HOME/Library/Application Support/Bitcoin/bitcoin.conf  and put:

connect=IP ADDRESS

... in it.  Any of the command-line options (except -datadir and -conf) can be put in the bitcoin.conf file.

How often do you get the chance to work on a potentially world-changing project?
