Might as well be a firewall problem.
Just checked at $work and trying to access that Url http://dbpubs.stanford.edu/pub/...&name=2008-10.pdf, redirects me to
HTTP/1.x 302 Found
Date: Thu, 09 Oct 2008 10:54:28 GMT
Server: Apache/2.0.49 (Fedora)
Content-Type: text/html; charset=iso-8859-1
And that server (notice the port number in there) is reported to never answer…
I'll have to try that later @home…
