<3A5CB211.DD7F979F@aplawrence.com> I received an email from tech support at Caldera. They said that they were aware of problems of that nature and that once the sco purchase was a completely done deal (I guess some parts are still not closed) that they could modify sco to better work with COL (how's that for a product strategy - our client product doesn't work with our server product; so how many can I put you down for?) Just thought you might want to know. Thanx again for the feedback. Regards
