Linux box, I can't ping the NT box.  It's like the connection doesn't 
really exist.

The NT machine shouldn't need to have IP forwarding turned on, since it's 
the client in this case.  On the Linux box, IP forwarding is turned on.  In 
fact, the private network is all functioning quite well, getting to and 
from the internet, etc.

I'm wondering if the firewalling rules on the Linux box are too restrictive 
somehow, although I would have expected the connection attempt to be 
rejected if that were the case.
