Ethernet Shield: web client connection failing

I got my ethernet shield the other day and I was able to get a web server up and running in minutes. When I went to try it out as a web client though, I just keep getting "connection failed." I'm simply running the webClient example script.

My IP for the shield seems to be right as the web server script did what it was suppose to, and I could connect via telnet and a browser.

Has anyone else had this issue? I'm not sure what else to play with other than the subnet and gateway, which didn't seem to help either.

Any suggestions would be super. Thanks in advance....

Hi:

I have the same problem.

And I can´t use neither the telnet example and web service.

What are we doing wrong?

any idea?

I´d like to solve this.

I don´t know if it´s something about the shield or the IP configuration.

If I do "ping" to the shield is fine. But if I upload any of the examples: telnet, web server or web client, I can´t connect.

Please, help!!
