Okay, so it appears there are overall connection issues (i.e. this  
isn't just a RemoteBlast issue).  The fact that you can ping from  
command line also makes me think it isn't a proxy issue.  I'm not  
familiar with PHP myself, but I would think it only allows user- 
defined processes to access network connections, so that's my next  
guess.

Out of curiosity, is there any particular reason you are using PHP?
