Comcast changed their DNS servers to no longer respond to unregistered
IP addresses. Your system isn't set up for proper reverse DNS
See numerous threads the last few days on ftp-proxy, ssh, telnet. All
the same problem. You aren't the only one.
hmmm... I wonder if this might be how they are tracking people using
more than one computer inside their network?
