Crofters' lynx refuses to load up my cgi page!?

I tried to open up http://cgi.eaglecentre.f9.co.uk/blog/ using lynx (the ultimate text browser!!) and got the error: 'Unable to connect to remote host'

No biggie, just thought that you should know.

Has it ever worked? Its my understanding that the CGI Platform can not connect back on itself, so using Lynx on the CGI Platform won't work.

Hi,

Try http://cgi.eaglecentre.force9.co.uk/blog/ rather than f9, this works OK for me in Opera.

The problem is that opening the site specifically from crofters (remotely logging in and doing it, using lynx), does not work.
As I said, no biggie, and I don't know whether it was ever possible.
From any other computer on the net it seems to work fine.

Yes, as I said, crofters can't access sites on itself, and never could.,
