Well, I still don't have it forwarding packets, according to their webpage.
What is the delay from time of packets submitted to posted on the web? Seconds/minutes/hours?
Looking harder here, but it sure looks like Windows firewall is set to allow JAVA to do it's thing...
Bruce, how did you tell Win7 firewall to use JAVA? Did it pop up a security window for you to enable traffice? I don't remember seeing that, but this isn't the first JAVA thing I've done...Win7 firewall settings show java.exe and javaw.exe enabled for both TCP and UDP traffic.
