Gotcha, I suspected it was something like that.

I personally wouldn't connect such a device to the internet unless I had to, or if I had firewalls configured correctly. But I'm going to assume you know what you're doing in that regard :)

I would prepare for the inevitable time when a Chromium-based web browser simply becomes unsupported on i386.

Also I was incorrect about Wheezy support. It still has commercial Extended LTS support for another seven months. https://wiki.debian.org/LTS/Extended
Looks like the LinuxCNC folks will need to plan on migrating to a later version of Debian soon.
