That's interesting.  We've also determined that the ISS Scanner will take
down these printers, but unfortunately we haven't determined exactly why.
Just a port scan won't do it, but a full-bore scan will.  If anyone has any
theories on just why these things go toes up, I'd be interested -
conversely, if we do manage to figure this one out, I'll be glad to post it.
