- Subject: sorry all
Sorry about my crankiness regarding AOL. It affects a lot more than
catalog access for us here--our University uses VPN for remote access and
AOL feels that VPN is insecure and blocks it, so our users can't access
databases, etc. if they are at home and using AOL. I find the concept of
VPN being insecure puzzling since the first time I used it was at NASA...
there are a couple of other ISPs that block VPN, but those I suspect have
to do with system loads as they are either free or darned near.
