NIS and no solution yet

Seak, here is a link for free 'trialware' of Norton Internet security, the
2004 package (I have 2003 and am not sure if that is part of the problem):

James, thanks for the lead and yes I do have it correct in program control,
just making shortcuts for the list here, that's a bad idea I see now in

When NIS is enabled and I try to connect, I get:
"server closed connection unexpectedly";
when it is disabled on the viewer end but enabled on the server end, I get:
"connection timed out" and I think a '10006' error message.

Thanks for your help in mitigating my madness here;)

I've lots of machines available to me for tests, but I don't have NIS. If
you could tell me where I could find NIS, eg some evaluation version, I
could take a look for you.
