Unfortunately, the title of this how-to is gross inaccurate. This is simply showing how to install MyDLP, but leaves the how to "use" MyDLP off completely. I'm sure others will come across this how-to and wish it had been complete and had shown them a quick how-to for actually using MyDLP like the title said it would.
