The nameserver is fine.  I've used "ping" as a quick test.  Those machines
that can connect fine and those that don't every get there both show the
same ip at Gilbert's end.  I know some sites disable "ping", however, it
works for "weather2" when I can connect, and doesn't when I can't connect
via LDM.

I just tried connecting to www.niu.edu (which doesn't to ping's), and it
works fine.
