You need to get the firewall administrator to allow outgoing connections
to port 2401 (presuming you want to use pserver to connect).  If your
filewall already allows RSH (unlikely) or SSH (quite possibly)
connections, you can use one of them with the :ext: connection method
instead of using pserver.
