Hi Gordon,

Thanks for the help and sorry for the delay in response.

Curl fails.  This so weird.   I dumped CentOS and installed Ubuntu, 
Ubuntu is working fine.  I have other CentOS, Windows and Ubuntu Vms 
working fine in the same environment.   I am using the same IP info for 
Ubuntu that I was using for the CentOS VM.

I needed to get this server up and running, so I am going to keep Ubuntu 
in place for now.  I will try a new CentOS vm as time permits.
