vrf 2nd attempt - IPWorks UDP Solution

Question asked by bwalden on Oct 6, 2000
Here we go again - as near as I can tell, this message was not
"reflected" the 1st time so here is a 2nd attempt.  If I'm right, my
messages have not been passed on numerous times recently and I may not
be the only one.  Is anybody else seeing this?
