Sure enough, there is a "allow local LAN access" checkbox.  I just checked
that and connected, but was still unable to access any of the 192.168.0.*
computers (the ones on my home network).  I at least have something a little
more specific to Google now.  Thanks.

I was thinking about changing them all to 192.168.1.*, but then I was afraid
that if I successfully got my computer to someday be a "bridge" between the
two networks, my home computers wouldn't start having IP conflicts with
computer's at work.  :]

That I had tried, and just got a normal timeout.
