Although Wayne still has 2.8.2rel.1 on his site as the latest "stable"
release from him, I wouldn't advise that you actually use it. There have
been many bug-fixes and improvements since then. Try Jim Spath's binary
of 2.8.4dev.6 or Senshu Hiroyuki's binary of 2.8.4dev.10. If you use
Hiroyuki's version, look carefully for the English documentation and
lynx.cfg file in the package.

You imply that you have a firewall. Lynx should get through the
firewall the same way other browsers do. Look at your firewall
documentation and at how other browsers are configured. I believe that
you said that you were using WindowsNT. I have never used NT. Doesn't
it require appropriate permissions? If it does, are permissions set

You can try running lynx as "lynx -trace" then look at the trace file
to see what happened.
