Is there a max on the number of users in a space? is it based on the server specs?

Even though I know someone's IP address, I don't know how to use the IP address to access his or her PC. Does anyone kindly teach me how to specify his or her IP address?

I'll expand on what I wrote before - it is a manual process at the
moment (I'm sure this'll be configurable in the future - although I
noticed this is a jvm argument.. which makes it a little less
configurable doesn't it?).
To connect to a friends machine you'll need to do the following:
1. Edit the file lg3d-wonderland/build.properties and change the following line:
sgs.server=127.0.0.1
to
sgs.server=ip address of my friend
e.g. sgs.server=192.16.1.100
2. Save the change then run
ant run

You should now connect to your friends wonderland server.

Note: You do not need to run 'ant run-sgs' (but your friend does).

As I said I haven't tested this (nor know the full details), so there
may be a couple of issues:
* The server may bind to the specified IP address. If this is the case
then it'll be bound to the loopback network rather than the ethernet
IP, so you may need to make the same change on your friends machine
and restart the sgs (ant run-sgs)
* Your avatar name (or connection account) comes from your local user
account that is running the client (the $USER environment variable on
linux systems), so if you both have the same local user account name,
logging in one may log out the other.

If you are following the instructions from
lg3d-wonderland.dev.java.net then you are actually running a local
server (that is what the ant run-sgs is doing).

Others can then connect to your server as well - you need to change
the sgs.server property in the build.properties file before doing an
'ant run'. Mind you I haven't tried this out, but just going on the
theory.

However I don't know if the guys at Sun have set up anything publicly
accessible for others to join.

Kirk is correct. We don't have any public servers setup at the moment, so you are running a server on your machine. If you share your IP address with some friends they will be able to log into your server.
