I just tried it again from my home (not freeserve), and it works fine. Has
it ever worked before? Can you telnet to port 2401? Can
you ping Can you telnet to port 80?
If so, and you type "HEAD / HTTP/1.0" followed by two returns, does it have
a Via line?

I wouldn't have expected freeserve to block port 2401 _outbound_. It
doesn't make much sense, but it does look a lot like firewalling...
