I downloaded freeDUM and tried to set it up. It will dial-in and
connect fine on my system but it will not automatically hang up. It looks
like the system 'tries' to hang up but the process seems to die. I take it
this doesn't happen to you? Did you find any other problems with freeDUM?

PS: If Rocke is keeping count, he can add my name to the list of being
able to request larger key spaces. Like adding a switch -k29 where the 29
would request 2^29 key pair complements at a time.
