Last question.  Why would the AbsMax option cause MRTG to fail.  I added the
config in for the necessary routers but MRTG won't start.  I get this
message in the W2K event viewer when I try to restart the Fire Daemon

Subprocess monitoring failed due to subprocess is no longer active.  The
subprocess is probably dead.  Restart the service.  Erro code: 0.

When I comment out the AbsMax, MRTG restarts just fine.  Here's a copy of my

Is there some glaring problem?

Nope.  Absmax to PIR and MaxBytes to CIR.
