Hi Horstl, Thanks for the reply. Sorry I don't understand where to enter the /localinfo -u command. I've tried in the script and in Windows cmd but nothing happens. All my Options:Connect:Local are correct as you describe - 'host name' and 'server'. As I said Ops have checked - everything is fine. That's what's so darn confusing about the whole thing. Of course, I suppose there's a chance that they are missing something. And I also said this is the third script I have tried. They have all been clean installs. I am more than happy to post screenshots of anything you might like to look at yourself. Or the Ops that set me up and checked everything have used Crossloop and I'd be happy to do that too. As for your workaround script, I appreciate the thought but I have no idea what to do with it :-)
