Hi Booth,

That is exactly what I haven't been able to find in any documentation.  So if I 
understand it correctly where it says "System name" if it's connecting on a 
local lan it wants System name.  But if it's on a remote machine it wants 
Domain Name or IP address.  That was very nice of you to publish an IP 
address for me to test CA to see if the remote PC is configured correctly.  
Thank you.  When I put in your test IP CA asks me for a user ID and 
password before I get to a signon screen.  Do you by chance have a user ID 
and password that does nothing but sign someone off the system.  I would 
like to see a signon screen so I could verify that Express is configured 
correctly but I certainly don't want you to compromise your security.

Thanks a buch,

Gary Kuznitz
