I just downloaded and installed Mountain Lion (the day after its release).

The next day I decided to install Mac OS X Server, so I dished out $20 and downloaded it from the App Store.

"setting up your server is incredibly simple" - Yeah okay. This is exactly what I do:

1) Open server. The "Set up your server" screen comes up.
2) Click "Continue".
3) Click "Agree".
4) Authenticate

I get a dialog box that slides down and says, "Could not connect to the server." The only option is "OK".

5) I select Manage->Connect to server..., and choose "This mac" from the list and click "Continue". It brings me back to the same screen that I started with.
6) Repeat 1-4. Same results, except that the application exits.

There aren't many options at all and I can see nothing else I can even try. I'm on a Mac Pro connected wirelessly to a Time Capsule. My ISP is Comcast. Do I need to do any special configuration to my router or adjust any other settings?

There's no documentation out there for this new product and nobody else has had any similar issues. Any help is greatly appreciated.
