No, that's backwards.  You must have misspoken.  You must have the basic network
stack functioning before you can troubleshoot packet filter problems.  This is
exactly what you've just gone through.  You didn't know your basic stack was
working _until_ you disabled the f/w.  That unmasked the minor problems you
still had with your basic network stack and informed you there was a f/w problem
as well.

You're welcome.  If I'd have been paying closer attention in the beginning, I'd
have caught that log error about permissions.  Sorry I didn't catch that sooner.

Heheh.  Your gratitude has given my new year a good start. :)  I didn't really
do all that much, but I'm glad it helped a little.

Ditto.  Enjoy that fresh air up there whilst you're surfing reliably with a
little bit better speed.  I bet the Verizon service sure beats the latency of
satellite don't it? ;)
