Oh no, it's Michael Sattler being sarcastic again!

I particularly like the "Treat others as you would have them treat you" one.
Who is Dilbert?

On this TIA/CUSM issue:

I _still_ maintain that it is NOT a matter of TIA not using UDP, as it does.
Those with TIA on a Mac, and with Peter Lewis's MacTCP Watcher, run a UDP
test and you will see that TIA passes a UDP test. Under Windows, use
Chameleon's test thingy (sorry, I'm on my Mac now).

Run a PING test, which uses ICMP, and it will fail.

I corresponded with the TIA people way, way back on this matter and the UDP
thing is not the critical issue.
