[rabbitmq-discuss] Connection attempt from disallowed node question

Thanks for the help.  I believe I have the problem resolved now.  What
seems to be the issue is that our network logins don't point to the local
user home directory.  This does raise another question, however.  On my
local machine, opening up the cmd.exe shell drops me in
C:\Users\[MyUserId]\ folder.  Within this folder, I have an .erlang.cookie
file that matches the C:\Windows\.erlang.cookie file.  The values for my
HOMEDIR and HOMEPATH variables are H: and \ respectively, and I found that
there was also a .erlang.cookie file in that folder as well that didn't
match.  At what point did each of these files get created?  I'm assuming
that the Erlang installer created a cookie in one of the folders while
running an erlang process for the first time user my user created the
other.  Could this be an issue with the installer perhaps?
