That does sound familiar.

I set them through the web interface. Here's the section from the ini:


This looks perfect to me, but unfortunately the training interface 
doesn't seem to use them.
I couldn't find a log file though, so can't report on possible errors. 
There wasn't one in either the AppData dir, or the ProgramFiles dir. 
Event log didn't show me anything either, but I don't think you send 
messages there anyway.
Where should the log file reside?

Thanks, I'll take a look at the tracker. And thank you for the reply.
