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?

Thanks again,
