Thank you, I have gotten farther than this! But I appreciate your contructive
comments.

No, the sites are online, at least via Ping. Also they can't all always be
busy. I have a long list of sites and have tried each and everyone of them
many, many times. I look under Slirp "stats sockets" and see connected
sockets. It IS NOT BECAUSE THE SITES ARE OFFLINE OR BUSY.

OK, "No Response From Host" could mean:

1) The Host is Offline:
Try Pinging
Try anything else?
2) The Host is Busy:
Try another host
Try later
3)

Can anyone add to this? Let's get down to ISP type problems. I'll maintain
the list.
