The strange thing is that I can telnet out from my Linux boxes, my Windows box,
or any other host here. Just the Sun 3/60 has the problem. It is also the only
NetBSD box on site. It is also the only Sun 3/60 here. I cannot tell whether it
is a Sun problem or a NetBSD problem. I think it is NetBSD, but I am not sure.

Any more ideas?
