It sounds like you didn't enable the outbound network when you compiled the
moo. In the options.h file, uncomment the line "#define OUTBOUND_NETWORK"
(remove the "/*" and "*/" around it) and recompile.
The ability to open network connections is disabled by default for security
reasons. Uncommenting the #define OUTBOUND_NETWORK line allows outbound
network connections to be made. Think carefully about this, though, as
it'll let anyone with wizard permissions on your moo initiate internet
connections from it, possibly getting past any firewalls you have set up.
