Moonlight Sonata

With help from the project wiki, I succeeded in configuring MPD on my server. Then I installed the Sonata client on my laptop. However, it refused to connect. When I ran it from a terminal, I saw this message:
[Errno 111] Connection refused
I guessed there was a problem with my server configuration, but I didn't know what it was. Luckily the troubleshooting section of the wiki pointed out that bind_to_address should not be set to "localhost" if you want to connect from a client on another host. I commented out that line and got a connection the next time I started Sonata.
