no problem with the gatekeeper because I am the administrator as well. 
My last question is why "Automatic Discovery" has been removed ? security
problem or something else ?
Another question : how can I manage to get the same feature ? I mean, if my
terminal move somewhere else in another network, get another IP address from
DHCP and so on... how can I automatically register to the new local
gatekeeper without seizing it's address ? I guess I can do something with an
FQDN that can be resolved differently depending the place the terminal is,
but I'm unsure. Or maybe the adresse of the local gatekeeper can be set by
the DHCP process... Any idea ?
