I didn't think so.  Routed on this system supports RIP, but I don't see
routed running.  But I can't come up with any other explanation for those

Done.  They're gone now.  No difference in the pinging.

Well, this firewall is in production use, supporting about 35 people, with a
bunch of port-forwarding rules & other stuff, so I'd rather not mess with it
if I can help it.

Drat!  I keep trying to remember to change that, but it slipped past me that
time.  Most of the mailing lists I'm on default back to the list address as
the Reply-to:.

I'm going to set up tcpdumps as mentioned in your other message which I just
received.  Then I'll try some pings back & forth & see what I can see.
Please let me know if there is anything else I should try.

Thanks for all of your help!
