Actually, Bernd gave me the necessary clue. My configuration had never before used Handlers, only a default Realm. Adding the call-check stuff to the end of the configuration file was essentially pointless because the default Realm appeared earlier. Converting to using two Handlers, one for call-check first and one for everything else second, has cleared up the problem nicely. I guess I had basically ignored the Handler stuff in the manual, figuring I'd get back to it someday after I had things working. Well, now was the time. -- Dave Close Quik Internet +1 949 548 2171 Costa Mesa California [EMAIL PROTECTED] http://www.quik.com/ === Archive at http://www.thesite.com.au/~radiator/ To unsubscribe, email '[EMAIL PROTECTED]' with 'unsubscribe radiator' in the body of the message.
