Yes I tried this, I also added entries for each Xchange service(netbios
and preloaded them all.  I think if I used the IP address of the Xchange
server instead of the name when I added the service I could go around this
but that doesn't work either.  
I may add WINS to the server just to be sure.  I wonder if Gateway messed
something up during their preinstall, or applied a security setting that
is preventing my connection.
Thanks for your suggestion.
