I have installed a CAD/CAM program call eCabinets (its a free program for woodworking and cabinet shops). When it starts, its asks for its registration code which I have. It then tries to open the default internet connections to register but eventually times out. By the looks of things, it its acting like a firewall is blocking it. I do not have a wirewall installed yet. I am running Ubuntu 8.10 with wine 1.1.11. I can hit the web through wine using Opera (installed with wine-doors)
using a net monitor, it gives me an IP address 216.49.xxx.xxx.
a different monitor show no traffic.
when I try to ping it, nothing.
I used another computer (windowsxp) and was able to rigister another copy (its free software). (its not on their end) [Mr. Green] 

any clue for the noob?
