I would like this to be a turnkey system too, but I am gathering information of about what issues would occur in order to present a case to the decision maker that this may not be a good idea

..this is what I meant by "obvious inability to resolve hosts". I was thinking of other side effects that would not be so apparent. e.g. if the ntp settings included the host name then the time would drift.

revised Can the encryption option with zip on Linux when used from the command line?
I added the comment to tell people that it is copyright but I think that most users who encounter this problem won't search for Info-ZIP but will commonly call the command zip.

@ChrisS I guess there is a free OpenSSL client for windows too. The zipped files will be sent to an FTP server to be picked up by a Windows user. The encryption is mainly just to avoid a casual user from accidentally peeking into the file.
