Here is the scoop. I work for a department where we have 36 different users and we all share 22 networked computers. All but 2 are on the network through a T-1 line. So when we log on XP will authincate. We have 2 computers that go through to the mainframe using DSL. XP has a sercuity issue where it will allow you to log in 10 times and if the mainframe is not accessed and it can not authenticate then you are locked out. Is anyone out there having similar problems? Usually companies have 1 computer assigned to an individual so this is not a problem. I hope I have not confused you to much please respond with ideas and solutions. <img src=/S/bash.gif border=0 alt=bash width=35 height=39>
