Thanks Adam. I also don't really want to have anything to do with this,
they just think its our fault. However the client is not telling me the
full story as they say they have not been able to use the machine since
(and including) last Friday, an haven't changed any settings. However
we can see DB entries entered from that machine on Friday so we know it
worked then at least.

Anyhow all that is an asside.

Appreciate your help with this.
