I tried the second one, the global catalog port, just now, and in a
preliminary simple test it worked perfectly for what I'm doing.  Since
that avoids having to ask the Windows-side support people to install and
configure the service, I'm inclined to go with it, unless other problems
appear in further testing.  

Thank you *very* much for your assistance!

Adding "global catalog port" to my searches brings up a number of sites
that advise using it -- none of which came up without that term in the
search, unfortunately for me, or I would have solved this several days
ago and without bothering you people.  Possibly if I'd recognized the
pattern of tcp traffic as representing referrals, searching on that
would have gotten me somewhere.  Oh well; live and learn!
