With Netscape 4.7+/Linux I see the page at http://www.quantas.com/ get redirected
to the page http://www.qantas.com.au/regions/dyn/home/qualifier-region-au.
Using curl from the shell, the page is returned okay. But! Using lynx in the
shell returns an empty page.
They are definitely doing some strange things.
But I did not get a "connection refused". That error message means that
port 80 on the web server is not responding to TCP connect requests.
Suggestion: try the long URL above and let us know if it works.
