Not on the Solaris version, but users outside of the ADMIT range get
the "No response from ..." message from our IRIX reflector. Also, we've
tried to tie two reflectors together via UNICAST-REF: if either system
has an ADMIT line in its config file, we get a continuous stream of
"Reflector configuration mis-match from ..." messages.

Is there anyone on this list who has successfully used UNICAST-REF and
ADMIT, together?
