Very much thanks to everyone for advice & feedback,=20
it is very helpful!

I beg your pardon, 'hacked' is the wrong word.=20
'Installed a translator' is probably more accurate.=20

Hmm, nothing like that is running on the Win2K server, but=20
everything works.

Thank you for the offer of help if we wish to stay with Windows=20
server, but we're content to try ScientificLinux instead.

That sounds bad.

How is it detected if the Win2K IBM AFS 3.5 server=20
has been patched? All its files in=20
C:\Program Files\IBM\AFS\Server\usr\afs\bin are dated
17 Aug 2001. C:\Program Files\IBM\AFS is all dated 18 Feb 2003.
So - likely unpatched.

The AFS server won't report its version info,=20
rxdebug -version says
AFS version: CML not accessible: No version information
