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.
