Probably you have a problem connection to the Daffodil Gateway Server, maybe because of a firewall. Please try to telnet telnet 8080.
	If this does not work you can not run Daffodil. Please ask
	  your system administrators to open that port from the inside
	  to the outsite, exspecially to the machine port 8080.
If you have a firewall, and a proxy computer see special
