and an OK button and that's the end of the show..... nothing else happens. I think I might have stumbled onto another symptom of a deeper problem with this server: the other symptom is that I cannot get the ActiveSync Direct Push routine to work without errors on the PDA phone - been doing tons of reading up on the Direct Push technology. I'm not finding much on this error so far so I'm posting here now hoping to resolve this in a couple of hours if at all possible. I just installed all the lates service packs a week or two ago on this server (the final SBS SP1 patch ran for hours..... overnight) so I'm pretty sure it's fully patched. Thanks for any insight.

Ip config looks OK.
