10054 is the Winsock error code for Connection Reset, which is likely
indicative of a bad setup on the remote side. As Mika mentioned, first
ensure that the remote node is allowing your IP address to connect to
whichever service you're looking for - mainport or FCP. (For FUQID, it's
FCP, and note that you lose anonymity making FCP requests to a node you
aren't operating locally.) These are set via freenet.conf options on the
server running the node.
One gotcha is that when you're using a tunnel, is that the node sees the IP 
address of the _endpoint_ of the tunnel, not the real source IP. So if 
you're tunneling straight to the computer running the node, access from 
localhost is enough.

Problem solved, it was that gotcha, FCP was dropping connections from
localhost.
I commented out fcpHosts=client.domain.name so Freenet allows localhost to
connect fcp port.

I control a unix (linux enterprise) server for my web sites.
Can I run a node on this and access it from home?  Obviously typing
As long as you can install a decent JVM (Sun 1.4.2_05 seems to work 
reasonably well), yes.

http://127.0.0.1: will not pull it up since it is at a server farm in
another state. (USA).
You need to set fcpHosts (for client programs like FIW, Fuqid, Frost etc) 
and mainport.allowedHosts (the web interface) to allow access from other 
computers. Also, using a tunnel (SSH, SSL or VPN) to access the node would 
be wise. And even then you should refrain from inserting big files via FCP, 
because it's somewhat bandwidth-intensive.

Also, if I have a router at home and 2 comps (XP machines) can I have each computer running a node?
Yes, but the limiting factor might be your bandwidth, and your two home 
nodes will probably end up competing for it. It's better to run a single 
node and give it more bandwidth.

With the above resources how do I get the most out of it? (configuration).  My BIGGEST 
thing is speed.  I hate not finding what I am looking for and I hate file not founds.
What would be better, unstable or stable?
Stable. The network is bigger, and most of the recent performance tweaks are 
in stable, too. You should run unstable only if you don't mind occassional 
network meltdowns, updating daily and/or want to help with Freenet 
development.
