In your network the clients should be using server, not peer, unless 
they intend to mobilize a symmetric association. However, without 
notrust they get served anyway, but an association is not mobilized. I 
did that for the original Windows XP client that was using symmetric 
active mode in error. It's hard to figure out how the dominos should 
fall under all kinds of misconfigured clients.
