We installed the ADC & then joined our exchange 5.5 site with a new
exchange 2000 server from our new domain.

The config_ca appears to work from exchange 5.5 to exchange 2000, we can

How is the server trying to be contacted when choosing these tabs, what
tests can I perform?

We believe we have set up permissions correctly and network connectivity
appears to be working. I can net view the shares on the bridgehead server
from the exchange 5.5 system

Any ideas or troubleshooting tips would be greatly apprecaited
