Hi Ashley,

You nailed it precisely. I turned dasher's firewall off per
your instruction and the problem went away.

  [tsakai_at_dasher Rmpi]$ cat app.ac3
  -H dasher.egcrc.org -np 1 hostname
  -H dasher.egcrc.org -np 1 hostname
  -H vixen.egcrc.org -np 1 hostname
  -H vixen.egcrc.org -np 1 hostname
  [tsakai_at_dasher Rmpi]$
  [tsakai_at_dasher Rmpi]$ mpirun -app app.ac3
  dasher.egcrc.org
  dasher.egcrc.org
  vixen.egcrc.org
  vixen.egcrc.org
  [tsakai_at_dasher Rmpi]$

Incidentally, all machines we have are inside the firewall
and none is publicly reachable without the use of vpn.

Many thanks to you.
Also, thanks to Reuti who raised this possibility in the
first place.

Regards,

Tena
