Hi Evan,

The address I need CA to connect to is a static domain name.  It's not a 
problem.  The dial up PC connection is resolving the dynamic IP address to a 
static registered domain name.  There are many services available that will 
do that for you.  Everyone seems to be skirting the original question.  I need 
to know where in Client Access Express to put the static domain name.  

Thanks for your help,

Gary Kuznitz
