Thanks for your welcome and support, its good to know there is help out
there. In answer to your question I have 6 remote machines each of which
already has the router x.x.30.250 set as default gateway. I have to admit I
am unsure how to implement the fix you suggest any chance you could explain
it further. As a further point no machine on the remote site can access the
box either despite the fact that the router is plugged through a switch and
should not need to authenticate to the SBS2K server to gain a connection.
