Thank you for that suggestion, Rob. I tried various options, but nothing
worked until I turned the firewall off and then a complete success.
The problem with my very old system (Pentium II 300MgHz clock speed) is that
to turn off the firewall and turn it back one I have to log in as Root and
that takes about 5 mins.
Is there a command sequence in Konsole that could do the same with root
password and without having to reboot?
