It definitely sounds like a bad firewall rule between wx.ifa.hawaii.edu and 
uila.soest.hawaii.edu (possibly on uila.soest.hawaii.edu) is causing the 
problem.  You can verify this by using the traceroute(1) utility on 
wx.ifa.hawaii.edu to make a TCP connection to port 388 on 
uila.soest.hawaii.edu.  For example

address@hidden ~]# traceroute -T -p 388 uila.soest.hawaii.edu
traceroute to uila.soest.hawaii.edu (128.171.151.63), 30 hops max, 60 byte

The above means that my workstation can connect to port 388 on 
uila.soest.hawaii.edu.  What does yours show.
