     2.) Since you advised the solution. Could you please kindly assist
little more by elaborating more. Which kind of program you are talking

with small example. I shall try to workout.

    2.) It is multi tenancy setup. CoovaChilli NAS is central in ISP NOC
Data Center. One Linux server is running about 76 instances of CoovaChilli
on VLANs interfaces. FR && UAM is also Central in NOC. Is this what you
asked? Please forgive me if i did not answered your question.

  Yes to all?  Well... the solution is pretty clear.
     Thanks Alan D. I am seriously grateful.
     Regards --RM
