Sending SETI units from SETI Driver

Hey all.

OK, SETI Driver works fine under Wine, crunches units beautifully even 
while the native Linux client is also running.

But it won't send  any units-- I had to turn auto transmit off, and it 
won't send even if I try manually (though the program continues to run 
fine). I tried adding a proxy server, but that didn't seem to help-- 
though I'm not sure, as I don't get a console output showing me the 
progress of the transmit, even if I check "Display Transmit" in SETI 
Driver (thus it doesn't magically open wineconsole or something :-( ).

I assume that the problem is that Wine doesn't know how to find my LAN 
Internet connection, but I don't know how to tell it what to do.

Can anyone help? If you think it's annoying having to boot into Windows 
solely to play a game, imagine how annoying it is to have to boot into 
Windows solely to spend 30 seconds uploading SETI units for your 
boyfriend.... ;-)
