I'm still running White Russian - haven't had the time or
inclination to upgrade it.  It works!  Besides I'm running
kinda short of memory on there with openvpn taking up a lot
of space.

I don't have filter_win2k set at all.  I'll test it when I
get home from work.  Don't want to fiddle the settings
remotely or I might take my home network offline, and that
makes for an unhappy family!
