This seems to be a problem with the current versions of the proxy servers. I 
have the same problem, but according to Adam Berg (I think the spelling's 
write there, sorry if it's not) their dealing with that in future versions. 
 
Strangly I did manage to get out to one of the key servers on 
us80.v27.distributed.net a couple of days ago, but now I can't get out at
all. 
 
I'm having to resort to loading the win32 pproxy on my laptop, dial in to
the 
net, grab a big batch of keys, and then share the buffers with my Os/2
pproxy 
that lives inside the network here.
