The strangeness continues... The only machine that can't reach this site
is the proxy server. All our other Digital Unix (4.0 -> 4.0B) machines
have no problems. You're right about it not being a squid problem
though... lynx doesn't work with or without the proxy server. Are you
running with a DEFPA FDDI interface by any chance... I'm thinking this may
have something to do with it... Or I may just be clutching at straws...
