Thanks to all of you I figured it out.

In WinRoute Settings, Interface Table, clicking on the ethernet adapter and 
then properties I selected the option in Settings "Perform NAT with the IP 
address of this interface on all communications passing through."  I then 
disconnected CA and re-connected CA (since it isn't smart enough to Auto-
connect even though the option is checked) and it worked.  I now have a 
firewall up and remote signon to the 400 through the internet.

Thank you,  Thank you, Thank you all,

Gary Kuznitz
