Many many years, Leon.  And I, like quite a few others I think, have spent 
weeks trying to get it to work, but the near total lack of docs rendered 
any efforts I made moot.  If it did try to connect, then it was frozen 
solid.  Its possible that someone intimately familiar with tcp/ip stuffs 
could walk around in that code and fix it, but sadly I had zero luck as 
its virtually commentless.

Cheers, Gene
