Thats exactly the point. I have read the docs. I saw the stuff
about turning encryption off. I would like to do it *only*
if nothing else works. The reason is that I do not want my
successor to have to remember that he has to tweak registry
whenever he adds an NT box or an Advanced Server box to the
network. Security is not the issue. Convinience is.

Do I have a choice ?
