Thank you. Just so I understand the specifics of when I want to
specify the 'destination' parameter using ssh:

(a) Domain or computer name portion to the left of the "+" must always
be uppercase

(b) Username after "+" sign (or username alone, without "+" sign) must
match case exactly

Questions:

1. Are the above two statements (a) and (b) complete/correct?

2. With regards to (a), are there any cases where the domain or
computer name is not uppercase?

Thanks!

Bill
