Similar to the posted: UPS Worldship GetHostIP.exe crash causes DNS error 53670, We continue to battle with UPS Link uploads. The problem is consistant on Windows 2003 server for some unknown reason. All was fine, than whamo, not working. Now, if we uninstall and reinstall, only one upload will work, then the upload will fail followed by the GetHostIP.exe crash. Firewall ports are fine (we can get it to work from an XP machine on the same network.) Does anyone have any idea why this UPS software fails to work on Windows 2k3 running terminal services? Is anyone else having this issue?

This is a problem with UPS's module.  It does not work on Server 2003 SP2 and they refuse to fix it.  Just use a windows XP workstation for this task and you will have no problem.  THere is no point tearing your hair out because UPS is too stupid to test this program on the server.  They assume everyone wanting to do this is using XP -- and they are not very smart anyway, the entire UPS interface looks like it was coded by some accountant with no idea of how to make a useful interface, ESPECIALLY saving user settings.
