Appears the remote firewall admin has made a change and didn't inform us - the icmp port has been closed. I tried to install Apache earlier today, first app install on this particular box, but it failed. Every server it tried to download from resulted in no access, not found message. I just tried again, and it finally found a server to download from after trying a long list of them. I used port_install this last time. It appears to be going okay now. Regards, -- Chip
