Well... I've tried it from a laptop behind an iptables firewall to a
stand alone host on the net and it does not work and I've tried it from
the firewall itself to the same stand alone host and it does not work
there either. I was hoping it would work from the laptop but it looks to
me as though it won't work from anywhere. A thorugh (2 day long) search
of the net suggests there are issues with Cipe and iptables.
