Thanks.  Brian.  

It makes sense.  I guess I have to open two logs side by side and see who's in at a certain time.

such a nice thing, wish I knew it better.  now I wrap VNC, pc-anywhere, http, and ftp with stunnel. giving me a better sense of security (not so sure how secure it really is)

Thanks again.
