I normally run my servers at runlevel 3. As best I can tell, you can't see
the mta/poa server consoles unless you first have the gui running (maybe I'm
wrong?) and start the agents with the --show switch.

A) Is that correct?
2) Is there a reason for that? Or is it worth and enhancement request?
(And don't tell me the web console is even a halfway decent replacement.)
C) Does anyone out there run the agents on linux with the server consoles
