Got it in one.

There's no need for port forwarding and I was only trying to resolve a
minor wireless irritation, (change the SSID), so I didn't push it. I've
no idea if I could have got the information eventually but not having it
up-front is not a good sign.


I must take issue with the term "a mere child", for it has been my
invariable experience that the company of a mere child is infinitely
preferable to that of a mere adult.
