I agree with Bob. ALIS uses the server name as well. We have changed internet providers a couple of times as well as changing IP ranges within the same provider, and using the server name has allowed us to not have to involve massive changes on workstations across more than fifty locations. All of the work associated with such changes was then done by and under the control of central site staff without having to deal with panic in the streets.

Configuring Mill clients to point to an IP address instead of hostname is just begging for more work down the road. (Unless, of course, you frequently change hostnames and the IP address remains relatively constant.) Note that although the arg that Steve points to says "ip=", it will accept the IP address or the server name. BTW, if your campus IT folks use something like LANDesk, they should be able to push out a change like this from the comfort of their cubicles. Bob Duncan ~!~!~!~!~!~!~!~!~!~!~!~!~ Robert E.
