In theory, yes.  The rc.local and rc.firewall files are the same ones we
used before the hack.  So they should work, in theory.  All I can think of
at this point is that there's something else set up wrong somewhere else.
I am pretty sure that I installed the package to talk to macs.  Would that
make a difference?  I can check and see if I did, if that would matter.  I
don't know why I wouldn't have, since I knew I was going to be talking to
the Mac.
