rip appears to be trying to use the cddbp protocol (port 888).
It's failing as doesn't seem to be accepting
cddbp connections:

    $ telnet 888
    telnet: Unable to connect to remote host: Connection refused

If you're in dire need to rip tracks, try audio/abcde: it uses the
CDDB CGI gateway which appears to be working for both

I can't test it though as I don't have any music CDs handy.
