The script for renaming urls and disabling venueclient's submit report  
bug is currently located at


I will move it later this week to the sourceforge AccessGrid location.  
  Sorry if the script is a bit rough I'm a novice at python but feel  
free to suggest improvements :)

The script was developed and tested on a Fedora box and a Scientific  
linux box as root, since root is the owner of the site-packages  
directory in python. I need to make a modification later today to  
allow the user to execute the python app to rename the urls in their  
~/.AccessGrid3/Config alone (probably takes about 5 minutes).    
Windows and Mac still needs to be tested.

At this time, disabling multicast by default for Windows 7 users is  
still outstanding.  If anyone knows how to do that feel free to email
