What we have here are two browsers running of a local machine (XP, but that's not important right now), and one X-forwarded from my home, all trying to get to perl.org.
At work, I cannot go to perl.org or cpan.org. At home, I can.
If I can route to home, and home can route to perl.org, I should be able to route to perl.org. And I don't know why I can't.
