Thanks for your response Alex. Telnet works just as it should:

$ telnet 80
Connected to
Escape character is '^]'.

I've compiled on machine different versions of curl to check if one of
them would work, but still no luck. Tried 7.33, 7.32, 7.21.4, with and
without "--with-darwinssl" option. I'd greatly appreciate any
hints/instructions what to do to find out the source of the problem.

By the way. I've installed Ubuntu via VirtualBox. sudo apt-get installed
curl (7.22.0) and curl works as it should. So it seems this is not a
connectivity issue. It has to be something with my OS/curl. How can I
find out the reason of those hangs? Is there any log file containing
some more information? (OS X 10.7). I'd greatly appreciate any help
from you.
