Hi Nick,

Answering your questions:
	1. why 2.0.50??????
	 That is the  recommended version of the current application we
are using is running on :(.

	
Thanks for pointing out the security aspect of it.


Ok, I got the definition of reverse and forward wrong :)

But still my original problem remains.....

If that's open to the outside, it's a serious security hole.
