WestonGroup,

It is like dejavu. :D  I was part of a similar discussion just the other day and posted a suggestion.  There were also some other great programs mentioned.  Take a look at http://www.experts-exchange.com/Networking/Q_22029265.html.  I have used Diruse and can help you with finding or using it.  It is free from MS.

Let me know if you have any questions or need more information.
