(the "Bank") as set forth on the Closing Agenda attached to this opinion letter as Exhibit A. In rendering the opinions set forth below, we have examined and relied upon (a) the statutes of the State of New Hampshire; (b) Articles of Incorporation and By-laws of the Borrower; (c) Resolutions of the Borrower of at or near even date; (d) Certificate of Existence for the Borrower of at or near even date and issued by the New Hampshire Secretary of State; and (e) the Loan Documents. In addition, we have examined such other certificates, documents and materials and have made such other investigation and inquiries as we have deemed necessary in connection with this opinion. The opinions hereinafter expressed are qualified to the extent that the validity or enforceability of any provisions in the Loan Documents, or of any rights granted to you pursuant thereto, may be subject to and affected by applicable bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, moratorium or similar laws affecting the rights or creditors generally. Furthermore, no opinion is expressed as to whether any provisions thereof are specifically enforceable in equity. Based on the foregoing, and subject to the conditions, qualifications, limitations and exceptions set forth herein, we are of the opinion that: 1. The Borrower is corporation duly organized and validly existing under the laws of the State of Delaware, with powers adequate to own its properties, and to carry on business as presently conducted by it, and is qualified to do business within the State of New Hampshire; 2. The Borrower has full power and authority to authorize the execution and delivery of the Loan Documents to which it is a party; 3. The Loan Documents to which the Borrower is a party have been duly authorized by all necessary action and, when executed and delivered by the Borrower, the Loan Documents will constitute legal, valid and binding obligations of the Borrower enforceable in accordance with their respective terms; 4. The execution and delivery by the Borrower of the Loan Documents and the performance by such parties of their respective obligations under the Loan Documents will not constitute a default, or conflict with or violate the provisions of, the Borrower's Certificate of Formation or Operating Agreement, or to the 5 <PAGE> best of our knowledge, any indenture, mortgage, deed of trust, contract, agreement, instrument, order of judgment to which either Represented Party or any of their respective property is now bound; 5.

Disclosure Schedule to Loan and Security Agreement Schedule 3.6 Litigation One of the Company's customers is subject to a lawsuit in Civil Action No. 00- CV-195, pending in the federal courts in the Eastern District of Virginia, whereby two named plaintiffs have made a claim of patent infringement against the Company's customer, which claim is believed to relate at least in part to such customer's use of the Company's products. There are no direct allegations pending against the Company in connection with this matter. On Friday, May 19, 2000 the Company filed a motion seeking to intervene in the action between its customer and the third party, and to transfer the case to the District Court of Massachusetts. On June 23, 2000, the Court granted the Company's intervention motion and deferred ruling on the issue of transfer. Also on June 23, 2000, the Company filed its Intervenor Complaint in the action seeking, among other things, a declaratory judgment of non-infringement, invalidity and unenforceability regarding U.S. Patents Nos. 4,814,883 and 5,200,825. On July 20, 2000, the Company agreed to indemnify its customer for claims brought against the customer that are related to the customer's use of the Company's products. On July 25, 2000, the plaintiffs filed a Motion for Costs associated with limited jurisdictional discovery against the Company. On August 7, 2000, the Company moved to dismiss one of the two named plaintiffs for lack of standing. On October 11, 2000, the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia held oral argument on the Company's transfer and dismissal motions and the third parties' Motion for Costs. Rulings on the three pending motions are expected within the next several weeks. On June 13, 2000, the Company filed a lawsuit against one of its competitors, nCube Corp., for patent infringement. The lawsuit alleges that nCube, with the advent of its MediaCube-4 video server, infringes the Company's patented and highly strategic MediaCluster technology. After a Markman hearing, nCube admitted infringement; and on September 25, 2000, a unanimous jury found the patent valid. The case now will move forward on damages and a motion for a permanent injunction. On June 14, 1999, the Company filed a complaint against an investment banker, an investment bank and a competitor that alleges that the competitor conspired with the investment bankers to injure the business and reputation of the Company in the marketplace and to drive down the price of the Company's stock to benefit them. In addition, the complaint alleges that the competitor, through its employees, provided the investment bankers with inside information to further these efforts. On June 14, 2000, one of the defendants in this suit filed a counterclaim under seal against the Company seeking unspecified damages. 11
