lo is the local loopback address - ie the machine.

what does the windows machine say, specifically? the probable
reason is that 18.104.22.168 is a non private IP - it seems to
be hosted in Montreal, Canada at first look. The win box would
be looking for a router, i'd imagine.

Use a private ip range unless you actually own 125.125.125.* .
send more info!

OK, so you'll need diald, squid or wwwoffle, and samba. why on
earth are you causing yourself so much pain by using NFS with
windows? Use samba - it's *so* much quicker and easier to use
with windows it's insane, and then you can mount drives natively
on windows and all sorts of other stuff.
