I'm getting a similar problem but only when loading Netsurf by
clicking on a link. Click on reload and it then works for me on RiscOS
Ok, after much twiddling (i.e. trial and error) I've found the problem
on the two RO4.02 machines.
I had the Host Names Primary and Secondary name server IPs reversed,
such that Netsurf was trying to connect to itself rather than to the
Swapping them round has cured the problem ;-)
The RO4.39 machines had been set up correctly, so worked ok!
For interests sake it would be nice to know why previous versions of NS
worked up to 11.07.2005 with the reversal in place?
