Agreed -- one of Axents features is to make sure there are no extraneous 
services running that could present a security problem. You could try 
calling Axent for assistance but I doubt they'll be of much help.
Out of curiosity -- why aren't you admin'ing Raptor with Axents RMC. They 
have a plug-in that allows you to load the RMC on as many systems as you need.
