Microsoft should go into the business of vacuum cleaners, where people want products that suck.
Ok I have installed the client and i do have 1 more question. I havent messed around with this program. Will the cisco PCF file work with this program or does it need to be redone. Also, if it does need to be redone, What are the settings that need to be in the config file? Thanks
