you'll need --enable-auth as well IIRC.

Thank-you-- I tried that, but it just turns on authentication.

I was looking to use the "--enable-local-write" which, according to the documentation is supposed to "Allow un-authenticated local connections to make changes. Normally, if you do not turn on authentication, the server operates in read-only mode, so as to not allow anonymous users to make changes to your calibre libraries. This option allows anybody connecting from the same computer as the server is running on to make changes. This is useful if you want to run the server without authentication but still use calibredb to make changes to your calibre libraries. Note that turning on this option means any program running on the computer can make changes to your calibre libraries. By default, this option is disabled."

That is what I was hoping to enable

Works for me with:

Code:
calibre-server --enable-local-write                                                                                 
calibre server listening on 0.0.0.0:8080
OPDS feeds advertised via BonJour at: 192.168.1.5 port: 8080
and

Code:
calibredb --with-library=http://localhost:8080 add /t/demo.epub

Ahh.. thanks for your help getting this sorted...

Mine does work using the local IP

Code:
calibredb --with-library=http://localhost:8080 add /t/demo.epub

but doesn't work with external IP (or via the website)

Code:
calibredb --with-library=http://192.168.1.100:8080 add /t/demo.epub
Is there anything else that could be causing it?

local write means write by connections form the local ip address.

Duh! -- I took that to mean enable the process to conduct local writes, thanks for clarifying! (Also, thanks for Calibre - its awesome!)
