I see, I misunderstood how that was supposed to be read; I had
assumed that they were independent, though a closer reading shows
that, as a whole, that can't make sense. Perhaps emphasis that the
steps are sequential rather than independent would also be in order.

It works okay now from another location; I think I'll have to chalk
the problem up to some unfathomable problem caused by my university's
brain-dead installation of the Squid caching proxy. For some reason
the people employed to actually run my university's network seem far
less competent than many of those learning about such things, let
alone the staff we have teaching about and researching them. Oh well.
