Will try this the next time I run into the problem (in the middle of
something that can't be interrupted)... most likely tomorrow night
when I DL the evenings TV shows (don't own a TV).... here is the
external config:

cable company (cablevision/optonline) <---- DHCP ----> belkin router
<--- (wired, DMZ) ----> host with issue

There is also a HP DeskJet 6980 on (wired) and a XP
machine on .3 (wireless)... the router is using default settings
except for the DMZ setting for  All wired connections at
100Mb optonline is 15Mb/down with unknown up (at least 5Mb)...
optonline has a firewall (indirect proof via inbound ports 25 and 80
being blocked despite DMZ setting)

I was looking for a suitable one couldn't find one... due to my
activity over the last few days the main other evidence I have for the
issue is slow/incomplete/stalled/lost/etc. connections on make fetch
on arbitrary ports and running cvsup -h cvsup10.us.freebsd.org
/usr/share/examples/cvsup/cvs-supfile [host is 5 hops away] (but spot
checks review all apps are affected)
