I wasnt complaining about the server, it runs fine. What I was complaining
about was the lack of functionality ( it barely works ) in the program that
was supposed to ship with the CD to manage Windows servers.
Incist: The bugs are not in the dedicated server, they are in the app that
shipped with it to manage it. It seems all your replies to this list have
been nothing but negative towards other people. You really should consider
leaving it and posting on the forums for everyones sake.
