OK John. I got that to work on my site in Trumbull, CT.    :-)  Also,
on the one in Stratford, CT   :-)

But, so far, I cannot get it to work with centos.org

[lanny at dell2400 ~]$ telnet www.centos.org www
Trying 72.232.194.162...
Connected to www.centos.org (72.232.194.162).
Escape character is '^]'.
HEAD / HTTP/1.1
Host: www.centos.org

Question: Do you have another command I can try from here? Thank you
very much and good evening!
