Normally the port 4661 is used for the network.You can either have a problem with the firewall or the serverlist - most servers are on dhcp.After one day a server list is basically dead meat.Just check with something like ethereal if you got something going in and out at all.I can send you a server list that works if you give me an email address.

You need to open ports 4661, 4662, 4663 and 4665.
In the console cd to where the donkey is and execute ./donkey...
If you still can't connect try getting a new server list from
http://www.thedonkeynetwork.com

Good Luck
