  This is all a moot point now since I have just been informed by 
Heather that the only way the on-rev server can be set up to do this is 
if you give them all of the IP addresses that people are going to 
connect from and they will allow those IP addresses to connect.  This of 
course will never work with a large potential user base of hundreds or 
thousands.  I guess I'm going to have to throw away everything I've done 
so far and start over with the web based approach that Pierre 
suggested.  It's going to kill my performance but it's the only option 
I've got open to me at this point.
