Retest today implied that Norton Internet Security 2003 is the prob.
It has "security" feature which can be turned on or off.
With security enabled:
GET /annotations?w3c_annotates=http://www.w3.org/WAI/RD/2003/03/announce-collab.html HTTP/1.1
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~: ~~~~~~
TE: trailers,deflate
Host: mr-pink.w3.org:8080
User-Agent: amaya/8.0 libwww/5.4.0
Connection: TE
Accept: application/xml

With it disabled:
GET /annotations?w3c_annotates=http://www.w3.org/WAI/RD/2003/03/announce-collab.html HTTP/1.1
Accept-Encoding: *,gzip
TE: trailers,deflate
Host: mr-pink.w3.org:8080
User-Agent: amaya/8.0 libwww/5.4.0
Connection: TE
Accept: application/xml

will try telnet through this firewall some time.
