Uh, 2.2.1 is quite old by now. Latest bugfix release from S2_2 is
2.2.7, and also 2.3.0 from S2_3 has been released already.

I don't know, last couple of weeks I've had a lot of trouble with
freeciv.org DNS even with browsers. Occasionally
"http://meta.freeciv.org/" has even lead me to wikia... (like
www.freeciv.org should) Also, remember that client shows only
compatible servers while browsers shows all.
And yes, due to nature of how dns information propagates, I've had no
trouble in connecting meta.freeciv.org from computer I've had remote
connection to same time as local machine has been unable to find it.

"-t" doesn't take filename with path, but just <tileset> part from
<tileset>.tilespec. So try with "-t trident".
