Care to copy your "ifconfig -a" output to the list?

"Sliding window?"  I'm not sure what this is... anyone?  Receive Window
(RWin) I have heard of....

What about trying a client app *on* the masq server?  Its packets won't
need to pass through the masquerading code.  Give that a shot.

You may also want to copy the output of:

ipchains -n -v -L

into your response.  Beware though that this will list all your firewall
rules and your IP addresses, etc. so don't do it if that is a concern.
