    Hi Lynn,

    This is a great idea. The links don't work for me, is this problem specific to me, or are others able to access the details of these links?

    Keep up the good work.

    Should work - I tried a smattering shortly after he posted and they worked.  Just tried first 5 on the list here as well right now with no dramas.  Slow, but no dramas.

    Ok, I had to login to the CA Support page in another tab and then the links worked ok, slowly as you say.

    Thanks Guys for testing

    These KBs are all searchable/accessable from the web without a Support Online login. The login requirement is probably due to me using embedded links from the Gen Product page on Support Online so next time I will try to avoid that.
