Hi Ben, others,

Thanks for the assistance. I still think it's gotta do with curl. I've
completed soms tests using FileZilla under windows xp. It was REALLY
slow, so you're propably right. Did get it to work though, even
communicating with the outside world. Had to put a couple of holes in
the firewall which isn't my favourite method, but it works.

Thanks for the assistance though, Daniel's remarks about the proxy made
me switch to plan b..
