OK, I plead ignorance.  I didn't get the original letter sent to the customer and I didn't know about this page.  And yes you are right it pretty much gives all the answers.

I learned about this page from this post: http://list.waikato.ac.nz/pipermail/nznog/2014-July/020987.html

I have learned that it is wise not to ignore email from Richard Naylor, especially when it is a reply to a post youíve made to the list.

In relation to the MFDs from what I have heard, the ones that are broken are not that old <face-sad.png>

Like I say, donít put them anywhere near the Internet, or replace them with something with software written since the 1990s. Iím sure the NE2000 network card upgrade was expensive at the time, but really, Iím sure itís done itís dash.

Anyway, I recommend that the rest of this conversation happen on Geekzone, thereís a thread on it here: http://www.geekzone.co.nz/forums.asp?forumid=39&topicid=150006
