Sorry too, but that didn't work. Looking at the /etc/hosts.allow file I 
see that I did carry out the instructions you gave earlier. However, the 
only way I can get into this machine with ssh is to stop iptables. 
Fortunately, my LAN is behind a firewall. I'll have to see how good it is.

I'm thinking seriously of downloading the CF2 disks from Speakup, but I'm 
a bit concerned about the download tioe. Is there anything like Debian's 
jigdo? Will I have to make floppies to use brltty during the installation?
