SuperScout didn't block it for us.  You can bet that I'm going to block everything involved.  Thanks for the tip.

I was just wondering if anyone was aware of this product/service
(www.gotomypc.com).  Apparently it will allow remote PC access from the
internet and doesn't require any kind of FIREWALL reconfiguration.  To me as
a firewall administrator and network administrator this is a huge security
problem.  This would allow anyone on your network without prior permission
to setup their PC so that it can be REMOTE CONTROLLED from the internet.
The only thing that prevented this from happening was SuperScout blocked the
site as a remote proxy.

Any feedback would greatly be appreciated.

Thanks,
