With DNS you don't have to change both your client access names, and your local hosts file. I am quite adamant against using a local hosts table. We've changed the IP addresses of all of our 400's over the years. Rob Berendt -- "They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety."
