Rob,

The security issues were what I was looking for. I thought the big one would
be extracting the ID files and being able to use them. I just checked the
names.nsf and found the "Enforce a consistent ACL" is not checked from "out
of the box". I can see where the user could un-check the "Copy ACL" on the
replicator and that along without the Consistent ACL, all kinds of disasters
are in the making. Is there any gotchas to look out for in changing it?
Wouldn't the -Default- user only having Author and read access prevent any
replication back to the server?

Mapping a drive and FTP should be blocked by the OS400 object security. Only
QNOTES and *ALLOBJ can get to it.

The system only has a few users so the size of the NAB is not that big a
deal. It seems like there should be a better way to get the user info (real
name, short name...) when Notes is disconnected then to need to access a
replica of the NAB.

Seems like you are helping me all over the Midrange lists.

Thanks.

Roger Vicker, CCP
