Well this is from a dial-up connection; the actual machine name at my
end is wall(.my.domain). I don't know the ISP machine name but Voyager
might be worth looking for. (dynamic IP 184.108.40.206/24)
In case it helps, I'm trying at around midnight.

No ipfw, I use the ppp firewall with:
set filter in 7 permit tcp dst eq 5998
set filter out 7 permit tcp dst eq 5999
As I'm not 100% sure that incoming would be on port 5998 I use the
-P m option as well.
So far all of these have worked once:
I get pings of about 130mS to all uk servers and about 280mS to the
us ones. I get the same (lack of) results with the Finish and German
Thanks for helping.
