Rob Winters had these problems when he tried to diagnose his connection
>When telnet'ing from an adjacent workstation, I get:
>$ telnet rc5proxy.distributed.net 2056
>telnet: connect to address 126.96.36.199: Connection refused
>telnet: connect to address 188.8.131.52: Connection refused
>Connected to rc5proxy.distributed.net.
>Escape character is '^]'.
>Connection closed by foreign host.
Trying to be helpful, Aaron Porter offered:
>I would assume that not all proxies are Unix machines, and as such
>you can't telnet to all of them. Or they could just have the telnet port
>refusing connects from the net in general.
The reality is:
Port 2056 (as well as the telnet port, which Rob did not try) is the old,
outdated, 56-bit server. Many of the round-robin keyservers are no longer
supporting the 56-bit server port, which is why you've gotten a refused
connection. The new 64-bit servers run on (guess...) port 2064.
