> What do you think about this :
> 1a- BL's authenticate DL's for applying XML into
> the processing engine.
> 1b- The 1st DL loggin into the BL is automatically
> the 'root' DL,
>        and has the ability to grant other DL's
> access.
> 1c- Other DL's (local and remote) can connect via
> CORBA after
>        the root DL has granted them access.
> 1d- DL's can connect to multiple BL's.
> 1e- BL nodes (or: VSH subnets) can communicate
> with other BL nodes
>        only if both nodes have the same parent
> DL.
> 2a- a DL authenticates other DL's for access to
> its nodes\subnets.
> 2b- DL's can connect to other DL's and
> upload\download XML
>        documents outof and into.
> 2c- No DL can connect to the root DL, so no
> non-root DL has ability 2a.
> thoughts?
