Just one connection.

Might it be some sort of conflict between my immediate ISP (Comcast) assigning a 
my firewall a domain name via DHCP and my using my "real" domain name on the 
inside?  Again, however, this problem didn't happen with RHEL 3.

I've also noted that if I run a traceroute to my main domain and let it 
finish--it may take a minute or two, but it eventually connects--other 
connections then work.  Immediate workaround is to insert the traceroute into my 
fetchmail cron job.
