No, as I am the one who installed everything except for the SMS and
the Terminal Services client. However, I cannot exclude with 100%
certainty that my TCP/IP implementation is still virgin, since
I have installed/uninstalled quite a number of software components.
OTH, I do not log in as Administrator, as a rule, so it is not *that*
easy for me to mess it up.

I was thinking of that myself - just have to find a willing
developer colleague or a free machine. I do have the option
to use one of the Exceed licenses we have, but I thought I try
it with OpenSource first, as I am involved with it myself.

Sounds reasonable - mostly a matter of finding the time.
