At first BL->BL communication seems more natural to me, but remembering the pull\push systems I misjudged, BL->DL->DL->BL comm. might be better. This is something to think about in the (near) future.

Positive energy. > Thnx Brad :) But serieusly, I see cristisism as a good thing because it will make me do a better job. Let me list the functionallity of the BL again the way I see it: 1. AAA (Authorisation, Authentication and Accounting), Authorisation = giving a user access to an system. Authentication = user+password system to get a network address space, cq an area where a user can run it's nodes. Accounting = Resources management (cpu\ram\HD space\etc) 2. Brokering, to spread and connect nodes (PL networks) across multiple systems 3. Optimalisation, a dynamic weighting system that predicts loads so the brokering can be done better. Note this system requieres a network of SINGLE type nodes, the +/- 120 diff. node types of the PL can never be 'compared' to each other.
