Sorry, I jumped the gun here.

Doing the above change allows me to execute notebook cells but only
on the machine (my home desktop) that is running the notebook server.

When I try from my laptop (also on my home network),
I still cannot execute code cells.

I guess this is not really an IPython/Jupyter issue, but I was wondering if
there are any known troubleshooting steps I can take to get a better idea of
what's going on.
