* It looks like this service is dependent on Web Interface - I wonder what it does if WI is down? I think that is the fundamental change here, not necessarily the UI portion. PN was fundamentally based on talking directly to the farm or target server whereas WI and PNagent assume a middleware web infrastructure to enumerate apps/servers and point you to the right place. While I understand the user experience benefit of the web services approach I do have the concern of not being able to go "direct". This might just be legacy thinking though, I go back to Winview when direct was all there was :-) Steve Greenberg Thin Client Computing 34522 N.

I stopped using PN back when the PNAgent came out. The few times I have used it since then, I have found it annoying and cumbersome. Good Riddance.
