Thanks for your reply Kevin.
I havent found any 7063 events in my log.
Every thing seems to be working OK now. However I will try using the
forwarders you suggested in a previous post.
Sorry I forgot to tell you my forwarder timeout. Its set to 5 sec. Lowering
this value did help, but didn't resolve the problem. Now using 5 sec again.
Is 5 the default value?
Thanks for your patience.
