Thanks for the reply--I'm sure you are busy with your mail list,
I appreciate it!

Network Utility on the server machine (Mac OSX) (which I have access to,
locally BTW) says that it has sent packets back.

But back on the PC where the curl client resides I am getting nothing

The number of packets reported by Network Utility is different than in
the successful
case; I'm not sure what significance this has, except that when I
deliberately send
a bad request I get a larger reply (html with error codes etc.)
