Are you using the binary for sun4, or did you compile your own?

take the source and compile it yourself, it works, but I don't
have Motif, so damn.

Or, maybe you are not having the same problem as us, which would
make me say huh?, because there are other people with the same
symptom. Mosaic does a DNS lookup, connects, and returns the
"Info server not ..." msg. However, it works on my local machine's
httpd daemon.

I.e. did you compile it yourself, or grap the sun4 binary from
