I had a bad cable modem and was down for a few days, I should be up now, but from work I can't access web pages that do not operate on non-standard ports due to a firewall policy -- I operate on port 8448. I'll check web availability when I get home tonight and report back to you then. <p>Bottom line--there could be 2 reasons why the comment was made (a) he tried when I was down because of the bad cable modem or (b) he is trying from a place that has a firewall setup that prevents going to web pages operating on non-standard ports. I don't know which of the two problems it is.
