Timbuktu Pro and ARA

I just wanted to add one point to your otherwise excellent article on Timbuktu Pro. You mentioned in passing that the Pro version works with ARA, but did not go into details. Other than TCP/IP support, this is one of my favorite new features. If you connect to a remote network via ARA and then save a connection document (an exchange files connection for example), the next time you use that connection document, Timbuktu Pro will bring up the ARA connection automatically for you (if it's not already there). When you quit Timbuktu, it asks if you want to disconnect from ARA or remain connected. I use this to connect to my office machine all the time and it works well.
