Thanks for the response.  So, here's what happens when I do that.  A window pops up asking if I want to accept the server credentials (or something like that).  I click yes and then it tells me that the connections has failed.  Now, I've only got port 22 open, not 9000 or that 34xx or whatever port - is that a problem?
