Ah. Now I understand the confusion. Sorry.
First of all, SubEthaEdit can only connect to other SubEthaEdits for
collaborative work, not to a webserver. The Internet button opens the
internet browser, where you can establish a connection to another
SubEthaEdit user that is not in your local network. For that you have
to put her IP into the address field. (For help with setup and how to
find out IPs, please have a look at http://codingmonkeys.de/
So long story short, our test server is actually a Macintosh running
SubEthaEdit. To edit files directly on a webserver together I'd
recommend to open them via Cyberduck and then invite your co-workers
to that documents by first connecting to them via internet if the
aren't in you local network (otherwise they are visible in the
Bonjour browser) and dragging them onto the documents.
If you had more of a wiki-like environment in mind the only solution
at this time would be a Macintosh server and a bit of AppleScript.
