Hey Troy and Shwaine,

That is a *really* snazzy tool.  I'm surprised I haven't run across it
yet.  Thanks for mentioning it to me!

OK, I think for the first time I've made a little progress.  I tried
nc on a port that I'm 100% confident with, port 22 (ssh).  It worked
as advertised.

Next I tried it on the questionable port, port 80.  On the server
side, it bound to 80 no problem.  On the client, I typed "nc -v
dirac.org 80" (-v gives verbose output).  After about 30 seconds, it
replied with:

nc: connect to dirac.org port 80 (tcp) failed: Connection timed out

Progress by a mile.  I think this limits the problem to either my
router or the ISP.   I think the next step is to connect satan
directly to the modem, bypassing the router.  If nc still doesn't work
on port 80, then it's time to grill my ISP and ask them why they're
breaking the TOS.

*Thank you*
