are you sure you can reach the host from the set-top box? Do you have a ping
or any other tool to verify if you can reach the host?
I found some set-top boxes have issues with default gateway ...
If you have no other tools on the box perhaps you can try your sample against
a host in your local subnet, f.e. the Fedora http server ...
