Hi Andy,

Thanx for the reply.

The DSL connection IS a business package, so I am fairly certain it
wouldn't block any inbound ports.  But I will check into that.

As for the DSL Modem, it's a Netopia and once it is in DUMB/BRIDGE
mode it's not accessible to check any settings.

If I were to give you the IP of the server would that be able to tell
you anything?  I am somewhat wary of posting the IP publicly, but
if it will help.....  :D

Thanx again
