D'oh! And everything is so obvious in the rear-view mirror.
Actually, I have never gotten the RHEL "Welcome" banner, although I
seen all too many default windoze IIS installations over the years.
Between the lower number of RHEL installations and the higher clue level
of Linux user and admin types, I don't generally expect that sort of
thing on the open net, hence my failure to look for the (now) obvious.
Perhaps their ISP got wind of their output and did something?
