Sorry, I wasn't very clear in my original message.

The SNA Server promo states: "Encryption client-to-server and 
server-to-server (SOGA) traffic ensures your user name, password, and 
data will remain secured even across the Internet."

I'm wondering if anyone is using this encryption.  And what their 
reaction is to the product.

Thanks again.
