Agent IC Connection Issue - not able to connect to external IP address

Setup - LQ with Agent-IC 
Problem - Originally the Agent-IC application didn't connect to the LQ's external IP address over the internet.  The problem continued even after making the appropriate port forwarding changes to port 6001.  
Solution - Once you make changes within the system, the LQ doesn't automatically try to connect again and simply times out.  You must first change the LQ's IP address to something else, then change it back.  This forces the LQ to re-connect.
