Well, we're coming to the end of the Beta -- the next released build looks to be the last one before GA.

I've had a few users indicate that they've been unable to "locate" a server from a client. They all seem to have one thing in common: they're using a software base station with Airport clients.

Now, this should work, since everyone's on the same subnet, but it doesn't seem to -- I think this is because (under OS 10.1.x) NLS/SLP (the service I'm using to do location pre-Rendezvous) doesn't cross these bridged networks as expected.

In B4 (which should be released on Monday), I've added the ability to manually specify a machine's name/IP and port to help resolve this issue. But, before then, I'd like to get an idea of how many people are having problems.

If you could take a minute to answer the poll, I'd appreciate it.

Thanks!
