Hi again

(original posting attached below)

Well after 2 days of head scratching I recalled that I had changed a 'scratched'
sunlink executable with a copy on the server, this file included a couple of
machine specific fields. Putting the file back made things work just dandy.

Thanks anyway to: (Glenn Satchell - Uniq Professional Services)
