That would be the usual candidate; I'll have to enable it and then try
it.  This is all using computers behind a firewall that are inaccessible
from the Internet.  So security is of no concern for these tests.

I'd appreciate that.  Mine is not a Sun (it was made by Tritec) but any
low-end SPARC of the era ought to do.  Even if it is an Ultra 5 with the
slow IDE controller.  I just can't see the controller making the big
difference for this application.

I would also appreciate it if you would copy the list so we can keep the
thread in tact.
