    What is Teredo Tunneling Pseudo-Interface and should it be enabled in the Internet Services Section? (these are services 'this computer' offers to users FROM the Internet- I do not offer anything that I know about). I happened upon the Services list with a myriad of lines with a checkbox and then a line such as "msg" then an IP address (usually one for my Network-we have a fixed IP) followed by a four-digit number. Some checkboxes are marked, some are not. The list is getting really long! Teredo is near the bottom of the list and it is marked. Am running a P2P with Residential Gateway dial up on only one P4 using XP-pro SP2 with six other XP-home units SP1. :confused: I really hate having mysterious, unexplained things run that gum up the works and use Spybot and Adaware frequently. With SP2 on workstations, other than the faux server, things really got crazy so I removed it. SHould I start 'unchecking' Teredo' or the other boxes?

    Thanks, Larry

    THanks! Read most of it, will keep it until it is finally phased out. Still need to know what those other boxes are and can I uncheck them. I have one emp that 'telecommutes'--- could be her logging on?
