I'm not sure what you mean by "what's configured on the other end". The 
right ID is the only ID I know of -- I had the admin walk me through the 
screens and I don't see anything except the name of the configuration 
group (which has a space in it so I'd be surprised if it ends up being 
an ID). I should also mention it's set up to do DHCP for the IP my 
client will use -- not sure if that matters.
