It is connected directly to an Efficient Networks Speedstream 5360 ADSL modem, 
which apparently does not act as a router (unlike many other Speedstream 

On my next try, Apple Remote Desktop reported that "others can manage your 
computer using the address wnpgmb01dc6-yada-yada.dynamic.mts.net", and the 
Mac's IP number was a sensible value starting with 142 instead of 10.  I 
could use the Java tightVNC client to connect to Remote Desktop using the IP 
number, but it wouldn't connect to the 142.x.y.z address or to the 
dynamic.mts.net FQDN.
