Thanks for your input. I did what you said, unfortunately it did not make a
difference. I also completely disabled the firewall(s) (I seem to be running
both ipchains and iptables) which also did not make a difference.
I have found a workaround by making an alias of the Linuxbox on my Mac
desktop. This allows me to connect directly using tcp. The strange thing is
when using RH 7.1 I never had this problem.
