it asks me but once I enter the passwd it tells me I don't have access.
Is there a permission error here somewere or is the something special I
need to do to the vqadmin.passwd file (the one with the password) that I
overlooked? or is it a problem in the vqadmin.acl file. I can see were
it might be anyone of those seeing how new I am to this progie
