IIRC, the DVG clients were TCP, not UDP, based. You seem to have noticed
this, however. I'd guess that perhaps your firewall deals with UDP
differently than TCP.

If your firewall is a Unix box, you have access to a Unix box, or don't
care about being anonymous for a bit, you may want to try out the gateway
scripts we've developed. Mail me if you're interested, and I'll forward
'em along.
