When we first started using the SOCKS package, I was having a similar
problem, though other users' were having no problem. When I asked the
guy who installed it, he had me change the SOCKS_SERVER environment
variable from the hostname of the server to the IP number. i.e.
before : setenv SOCKS_SERVER hostname
after : setenv SOCKS_SERVER 184.108.40.206
This solved the problem for me...
