in thread LWP::UserAgent connection problem as CGI

Yes, I know. Sorry that I was unclear. I pinged www.yahoo.com just as merlyn suggested. The response was:

64 bytes from 66.94.230.33: icmp_seq=0 ttl=52 time=9.800 ms 64 bytes from 66.94.230.33: icmp_seq=1 ttl=52 time=10.008 ms
That is why I said that I received packets back from the IP address. Thanks.

      Yes, it was definitely on the CGI host. DNS was the first thing I thought of, especially since there were some DNS issues a few weeks back. But this script works from command line, whether as root or as apache user, and fails as a CGI. Frustrating.

        Is your apache perhaps running in a chroot environment?

        I've had problems like this when my apache was in a chroot environment which didn't include the /etc/resolv.conf or other requirements for resolving DNS.
