Thanks for the reply Jim, you've confirmed some of what I was thinking.
I got the program working at work with some terminal servers, works
pretty good, very impressive.
I have a couple more questions. I
think I know the answer to this one, can console be used on a host other
than the host that conserver is running on?
Do you know if it's
possible to set up conserver to connect to netcon on an SSP for E10Ks?
Sure would be nice if it could.
