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

This solved the problem for me...
