I can ping the proxy from DOS, but not from Linux.

Lightning struck and my brain least for a second.  The IP
address DHCP gave me has a different third cluster than than that of the
proxy.  That's why I can't ping the proxy.  I don't know the Dos or Windows
equivalent to ifconfig, so I don't know what my IP address is in Windows.
I'd guess it's the same as what it gave me in Linux though.  (Doesn't DHCP
keep track of hardware addresses of NICs and try to assign it the same IP
address each time?)  Is Windows doing something weird to make the proxy's IP
available to me even though I'm in a different third cluster?  (What do you
call the four segments of an IP address anyway?)

I tried manually configuring for a netmask.  DHCP overrides that
configuration and gives me the
