So far as I know you have to configure a DNS Server or a /etc/hosts and 
work with names, because coda works with realms.

For example a setup with one coda server:

/etc/hosts
# the server
193.137.121.129     myhostname.myrealm.com myhostname
# the client
193.137.121.130   myhostname-client.myrealm.com myhostname-client

When I do:
# clog myuser

# ls -la /coda/
total 12
dr-xr-xr-x  1 root nfsnobody 2048 Jan 17 10:38 .
drwxr-xr-x 24 root root      4096 Dec  8 11:19 ..
drwxr-xr-x  1 root nfsnobody 2048 Jan 16 09:58 clusty1.mytest.de

And for venus:
You should run:
# venus-setup myhostname.myrealm.com 50000

And then check /etc/coda/venus.conf
realm="myhostname.myrealm.com"
realmtab=/etc/coda/realms

and /etc/coda/realms
myhostname.myrealm.com       myhostname.myrealm.com

The client and the server should not run on the same server...

Hope that helps, but actually I am not sure in your case.

Cheers,

Achim
