Well, I'll take a short break before I set the tick-mark for public :-) I think it is a nice idea, too, with 2 minor caveats: - the probes with type host should remain at the top of the list (the sort function for the column seem to not being available yet), and - rather than "public", or as an alternative, I would prefer to enable known users to beceome "viewers" and even be allowed to change configuration. This would be very helpful for en environment like ours, where there's more than one host for our probes. Right now both these numbers are *very* small :-), but if this develops into the structure I'd like to see, it will no longer be easy... > You'll need to reload the page (with the browser "reload") in order to see > these changes. > > Regards, > Robert Thanks a lot, Wilfried.
