Topic: Distiller log file
Conf: (P-PDF) Acrobat 6.0, Msg: 106407

Here's one for the books.

Distilling over a network
I log the distilling machine in as itself.
No one can read the log file.
I log my own machine in with the same password as the distiller, I can read the log file.
I am logged in as administrator, I can read the log file on any machine (obvious.)
If I add myself as a user to the Distilling machine and give myself administrative priveledges I cannot read the log file from my own machine (surprising).

Has anyone experienced something similar?
This kind of blows my mind. It seems that distiller is adding security to the Log file that allows the administrator, and the user that distilled the file to view the log.

Thanks for any help.
Thanks for all your help so far.

For example, those document restrictions that PDF files sometimes have -- no Printing, Content Copying, Page Extraction, etc -- are essentially useless unless the PDF also has a User Password.
