Default Bug? Feature? AND/OR Enhancement Request?

I have a small team of GIMPS computers, some more readily accessible than others. So I thought I would try an experiment: I tried to "Unreserve" an exponent from the assignment list of Computer "B" while sitting in front of Computer "A".

It sort of worked:
1. Computer "A" responded with the standard "Stopping / Starting ..." message. Then when I rechecked my team list of assignments the "Unreserve"d exponent was no longer there.

2. However, Computer "B" did not receive another assignment to replace the unreserved exponent. I checked a few times over the next couple days.

3. 2 days later I was able to get to Computer "B" and noticed it was displaying the error: "Error 3: Exponent not assigned ..." every time it contacted the Primenet server. This exponent was also missing from the Computer "B" worktodo.ini file. I tried manual communication ... same error. I tried adding the exponent back into the worktodo.ini file and unreserving it from Computer "B" ... same error.

Now, I seem to recall from past posts that if I just wait a few days the server will clear up this error ... I can live with that.

My only request would be to know if this is supposed to be a supported feature or something that should not have worked. That is, I would like the ability to do some team maintenance from any team PC. Such as:
- unreserve exponents
- send new expected completion dates
- change work type (LL, DC, Fact)
- change "at least..." days of work
- change frequency of updates
- set vacation
- ... pretty much anything I can do from my own PC I'd like to be able to for any team PC.

Have you considered remote access software? Maybe some flavor of open source VNC.

As far as I know all this is covered by the next version of PrimeNet but I am to lazy to find the relevant posts just now.
