That's not the case for this USB; I just tested it using Belkin's
software under Win98. In either case, I'd expect a more useful error
message than serial port timeouts in that situation.
I guess I'm just going to have to fall back on Belkin's software; I'll
see if I can't put in some firewall rules to block external access to
the daemon's ports and so forth. Yuk.
