Re: [vox-tech] Debian networking problem -- RESOLVED

Short answer:  I am a moron.

Thanks to everyone who responded and gave me suggestions and ideas. 
Thanks to Pete and Jeff Newmiller, I realized that the problem was with
the Windows computer's own firewall program; I have Zone Alarm on that
computer, and I had forgotten to add Lucien to the Trusted Zone.  I did
that, and everything is working normally now.

Thanks again to Mark, Pete, and Jeff.
