No idea why the article says not to use DRTCP. Works for me.
In any case, you need to reboot (or if you have w2k/xp), disable, then
reenable the connection, otherwise you're not doing anything.
Besides, if 1454 is good, 1430 might be better. You'd want to have a few
extra bytes available in case someone other than you decides to insert
more equipment along the way.
