Thank you Roman for quick reply.  I had typo on ORPort address that but 
just in this email.  My ISP at home and work does not pass Ipv6 so I am 
not able to ping/trace.  I think I don't have the resources to work this 
problem to satisfactory conclusion so I'm still looking for suggestions.
Your advice regarding working out the IPv6 problem before integrating 
Tor was wise.  That is the direction I will take.
