Had the same experience with the older version of AuthX, we are running the
current version now without a single problem. The standard version will
work with multihomed machines and multiple domains. I spoke with the
programs author and for the ISP version of the product, he wants to charge
a monthly per user fee. My feeling was that this was out of line, as it
is no additional work for him.
