* from Paclink.ini file account entry [Account Name] and EMail password = (account password)

TCP/IP addressing notes:
Use instead of localhost. This avoids any issue with a poorly configured HOSTS file.
If Paclink is on another computer within the LAN, use that TCP/IP address as long as addresses are static and not dynamic (leased). Leased is the efault setting for LAN addressing.
