Hey Fyodor

I see you decided to do the dynamic modules as I requested for.

Now I have to spend time to build an audit module.  To allow for quick 
auditting of at least connections..

Though has anyone noticed that MS based browsers have a slight problem (I 
think it relates to wininet.dll), in that when a browser closes a session, it 
uses a RST flag instead of a FIN flag.  Which could be a problem with old 
web  servers, I know linux 2.0.34 would leave a large number of connections 
sitting waiting for something after a RST. and they would be infinetly held
