To be sure.... v6.1 is really old. Version 6.2 was released in May, 2007.
Support for Windows 7 (released October 2009) was not added until version 6.9 (April 2010), so any functionality you have had with Windows 7 was purely luck.
As such, there is a vast unknown of possibilities of things that could be configured on a Windows7 system that might adversely interact with an unsupported instance of DW v6.1. If you were using RDP-based connections, then I'd look strongly at changes Microsoft has made in the Remote Desktop Protocol since May 2007, but most likely ones recently implemented. In any event, though, a functional change-documentation record would be your best friend at this point. If the Domain Admins are clueless as to what changed in group policy, you may actually have bigger problems than DameWare. :-)
As for the Winsock Error 10060, you might start with this article in the DameWare Knowledge Base.
Thank you LGarvin.
I was afraid that I do need a newer version of the MRC.
Issue on it is I mostlikely need to ask for a older version again since the Military is pretty strickt on the software usage. I am allowed to use only versions that are listed on their approval list and those are usually older versions (I believe right now it's MRC 7.x).
Regarding the article link - been there and checked it out before I posted this message
Thank you again for your reply.

Regarding "the list", certainly v7.5.9 would be a starting point for getting upgraded, but I'd be surprised if newer versions were not already on that list. The last release of v7 is from October, 2011, almost two years ago.
Good Morning LGarvin,
you'll probably smile now but......
I checked the list yesterday and it is still only showing it up to version 7.x .
When it comes to these type of things the military is very slow.
So I have been trying to get a quote from Solarwinds for a 7.x version before and again this week but no success.
I don't know if they still have a copy of the old program version but at least I have tried.
Wouldn't mind though to find someone who would be willing to give up on one of their licenses and donate it. :-)
You can only buy the current release.
I'll check internally and see if we have a scenario that addresses the fact that 7.x is the only "military approved" version.
