Hi Gerd,

Both students 1 and 2 reported using ZoneAlarm.  Student 1 said that he 
switched from ZoneAlarm to the built-in XP firewall everything worked.  
See http://bugs.lon-capa.org/show_bug.cgi?id=3423.  Susan, feel free to 
add your comments to this bug report as well.

Thanks for the feedback.  Let me know in the bug report or off the list 
what my FAQ answer to this question should be.
