That's what I thought.  Now they tell me that their routers (which pass
routing info via rip) can tell the presence of hosts on the other side of
my Linux router, which is using static routes, and that's the reason that
they claim I can't even get into their network.

building a 486/25 to be, which probably won't be available
to the internet until I get the routing right, but you could telnet to and then telnet to, and then do whatever
