An if you never get the NT 4.0 OS out of the box the system is very
secure. I think NT 4.0 is the best rip off Microsoft has produced yet.
Its not a bug, its just a feature that is not yet avail. Sort of like
Bill Gates selling cars....the motor will be avail. in 97' but, thats ok,
just pay me now.
NT is as secure as a box of bricks....as long as you never connect it to
anything else. Thats C-100 security.
Folks I am so bitchy because, I have just been through a load of
Microsoft BS - Funny part is the techs providing support really think
they know what they are doing.
