Not sure, but it is one of the suggested problems I see in many google
searches. There are registry edits that help, but I don't want to have to do a
bunch of edits when we get stuck with a hundred Vista machines. I have plenty
of time, for now, to experiment. There are posts that say the subnet needs to
be authoritative, but mine is. What happens is that the Vista system will not
route outside the local subnet for more than 5 or 10 minutes.
Vista is just a little too new to me, and I need to get more "feet wet" time.
I worked on a system at home for my nephew, but that dhcp is served by dnsmasq
MailScanner is like deodorant...
You hope everybody uses it, and
you notice quickly if they don't!!!!
