Jim, 

I am aware of that API (though I must admit to not having to around to
finding out whether it had the full IP address or not), however, I am
coding to the Telnet exit point something_or_other_DEV_INIT and to my
knowledge at this point the device has not been allocated.

One of the things I'm hoping may be possible is to name the devices based
on the origin of the request determined by the IP address, so I might name
a telnet user who logs in with 180.147.12.101 device WEL101, and reject any
Telnet requests from IP masks I'm unaware of. That way I can distinguish
where they are geographically and provide some extra security albeit it a
possibly minor level as I am understand that someone could spoof the IP
addresses.

Thanks for the suggestion anyway !

Chers
