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.
