What exactly do you need?
I have managed a significant installation of AVTunnel
(which one, by the way; there are multiple versions,
Service Packs, etc).
The server must run on Windows NT 4; the client has
had some additional life support, so that it does in
fact run on W2k.
I would strongly recommend that you migrate your
client off this product.
