NIS and no solution yet

Hi,

I installed NIS first, but, again, I run 2003 not 2004.  Also, it is NIS
2003 professional.  I will take Seak's experience with the download and see
if I can 'redo' the configuration by completely removing vnc from the NIS
firewall and then attempt to use it, if it is working correctly, it should
prompt me for a response.

Thanks!
Elke

I think NIS2004 should be enough, no need to use NIS2004 Professional,
right?

Which software did you install first, NIS or VNC?
