That is because netscape expects the other end to be a http server. If u
wan't to get data in the localhost:portno format in netscape, then use the
http protocol on your server. The fastest way to do this wud be using any
web programming language like php3/cgi-perl/java servlet, etc!! And then run
your web server on the port that you wan't! with apache, this is normally
very simple. You just hav to define a new virtual host, if u hav apache
already running on that server!
