Try specifying the "address" attribute of <Server> along with the port. Give it a concrete IP address instead of "localhost" and see if that improves things.

My Dear Mr. Schultz:

That did it!

Not knowing whether to give it or give it the box's actual IP address, I gave it the former.

It works. And the connector is configured to listen on anything, so it came up just fine, and is entirely visible from the outside world.

But that still leaves open the question of why an IBM Midrange box would suddenly start disregarding its own host table. I've never heard of a scenario in which *any* box with a TCP stack would disregard its own host table (and indeed, on any box under my control that can browse the Web, in which the host table is user-modifiable, I use host table entries to ensure that I can't be tricked [it's happened, more than once] into accessing Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, or a few other noisome domains).

What can make a box disregard its own host table?
