There is your problem. tech.nlm.nih.gov is not the same as
ncbi.nlm.nih.gov. Your SGI has the wrong IP address hard coded for ncbi or
your (or its source) has got problems. I've seen this problem on one of
the Sun clusters at UC Berkeley. The correct IP addresses are:
So you can use the following to connect with ncbi: ftp 22.214.171.124
If you get the wrong IP address and your machine does not have an entry
for ncbi.nlm.nih.gov in its /etc/hosts file then you should notify your
network manager. There may be a rouge nameserver somewhere on the net.
