Scott: There are probably one or two configuration settings that I do
not have correct at this time. That is why I am testing this on our
Backup IPCop box.

You got this to work, so it will work for me, if & when I get the
configuration settings correct. Question: Do I need to put something
in the hosts file? At the moment, I cannot use that IPCop box to surf,
because there is no name resolution. TIA! Lanny
