I'm a bear of little brain, so can anyone explain to me what fs_freq
and fs_passno are (or, better still, where I could find out). I just
set them to zero only knowing that this works.
I infer from Steve's post that this may not be a problem if everything
is sat behind a firewall (as is the case on my system), but, now a
query has been raised in my mind, I'd like to know,
All the best,
