  We have never connected to the Internet through anything but an "el
  cheapo" firewall/router. The CD-ROM will set up NAT on the ethernet
  for you. If the CD-ROM you are using does not let you do that, throw
  it away.

  I have put a new (13 Jul 2003) version of the software onto the website.
  I sent Madhur the files I use for development last night.
