As far as I can tell from looking at my /etc/services file, all Lynx needs
to access is:
21 - ftp
25 - smtp
70 - gopher
80 - web
119 - nntp?
42/53 - nameserver?

23 is spawned off to a telnet client.  If one wanted to get paranoid, one
could say aloow connects to those and only those, but then we have a
problem is someone runs a httpd on port 3005 or something.  I wonder what
happens if I try connecting to a MUD via, I get the login
