The problem is the Windows machine can't resolve the Debian hostname to an IP. Adding something to the Debian /etc/hosts file won't affect the Windows PC will it?
In any case, I swear this was all working before I installed Shorewall so I must have closed off port.
I'll try turning Shorewall off and trying it again.
