problems with connecting to port 110 with Getmail

Hi all..

I have the following problem... hope anybody can help me out.. (urgent)...

Ive installed Qmail sucessfully and it works..
No I need a Fetcher to get emails from a remote host POP3 and put it into local Maildirs... I ve found Getmail, seems to be exactly for this..

Connecting now to the remote host I get the following error:

Connecting to 194.333.333.333 --> No Route to Host

Can anybody give me a Tip... please

IT souns like it doesn't know how to get to the host.

Can you ping it?

Can you telnet to port 110?

If not can you post the output from "route -n"
