Tahaka et al.

No, apache is running on a different host.  The telnet application that I'm 
running is on a Win2K platform but it is not using a client built into the 
OS; it is a third party program.

As far as the incoming port numbers, I thought it was weird in the setup of 
m0n0wall in that I could not select "Any" for incoming ports.  It made me 
select 'telnet' although perhaps any is what ends up in the actual rules.  I 
was just wondering if ipfilter does not like incoming ports outside of a 
certain range and that perhaps a wider range of port numbers is trying to 
access my host than ipfilter is set up for...

Thanks, Ernie
