Thanks. I have been trading E-Mail with their supprot folks right now
on it. It seems to work fine on Apache servers but none of our NT IIS
servers workey are looking into it. I also am testing IPSentry based
upon some advice of another person here. It seems to be going much
better. I like being able to test telnet and radius and having the web
reporting. The only major thing missing is the ability to write
seperate reports for each web server so we can show a customer how their
particular web server is available vs. making them look at everything.
Supposedly the next release of IPSentry will fix this. I did find the
version of IPSentry off of ZDnet wouldn't run properly and I had to
download it directly from them.
