i made a post about some time ago. a simple 'strobe' will bring a bay  
terminal server crashing to it's knees. i notified bay years ago ..  
  
hell lets go something even simpler. 1 x 32k ping packet ever second at a  
annex will crush it. so, maybe you have something a bit beefier (i'm  
looking at micro annex els) fire 2 x 32k packets. gee that was difficult.  
  
admittedly, i haven't been up to date on the bay annex stuff, so maybe  
they fixed it.. but i never eever heard anything back from them so..
