It's nice for very small applications, IMHO. I set it up on a four 
user network (modem share) but that's about as far as it reliably 
goes... (ergo you can do more but you'll wish you hadn't.:-)) I've 
found problems with it and NT, and getting ftp logins to work, 
without ripping the Not Tough system out of the wall and braining 
Wingate creators and Bill Gates with it.

IMHO, there are a heck of alot of other, better, easier ways to get 
the job done.
