I did, however, succeed in completely losing my ability to connect to my desktop at work for a while, although the VPN was running fine. I went out for lunch, came back, and the problem had cleared up.
I love networking.
Meanwhile, I couldn't quite get a ping back from the Moon in the time that it's taking to ping my desktop. Actually, it's about 700 milliseconds.
Which is, in my opinion, too long.
