Also in the FWIW dept., Craig, I was using their commands, pasted directly 
from the web server at <http://sourceforge.net/cvs/?group_id=174026>

But generally speaking, I think your bias re old farts is showing. :-)

I just spent an hour on the phone to tech support, with the end result 
being an open trouble ticket.  We see how the cookie crumbles tomorrow 
when there's a slim chance somebody who knows what a unix port number is 
MIGHT be available to argue.  This person told me they aren't blocking 
any ports.  Yeah, sure, it's right in the TOS that port 80 is blocked.

Too damned bad the left hand and the right hand aren't attached to the 
same body...

Cheers, Gene
