    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    It sounds like you are making progress. Unlike Windows, Linux usually makes you use your brain! It won't do it all for you, but with some effort it can do stuff that is quite impossible (or at least mind-boggling difficult) with Windows!
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.

    Yes, slowly and surely... And what I think I learned is that what you see on your end isn't necessarily on your end! haha

    Meaning, while I was on comcast I didn't have any open ports... On VPN, open ports. If I'm correct, and please let me know either way, it's the server I'm logging into that has the open ports... Not anything on my computer.

    (And yes, things seem more doable on Linux then Windows!)

    Yes. Open ports are on the server "end" of stuff... IE, you don't need open ports to connect to a remote server. It is the one with its shorts showing, and needs to deal with malicious connection attempts. Have fun!
