	Oh, blitherition! I gave them names just so I could keep track, 
and I *still* mix them up. <sob, gasp, sound of head beating on 
computer ...>

	Meanwhile, I've shut all four machines down, and am in process of 
booting them up again -- whereupon I'll go into system-config-firewall 
and enable both IPP server and client as trusted (taking that to mean 
"trusted within the LAN") on them all; I suppose, now that I know more, I 
might as well install telnet, too. (I've known it save me, more than 
once, to be able to get into a machine that couldn't run its X-server.) 
Stay tuned.
