eboard says "Host not found: freechess.org"

Hi Per,

I just started eboard and I was successful to connect with my freechess.org account.

Could you please try again and report back? Many thanks in advance.

I tired again and got host not found again.

However I was able to connect to the server using "torsocks eboard", but after that the server did not accept my password.

I think this problem was not related to eboard, since I had to use torsocks in order to download source and ports for a while.

Now I tried again to use eboard without torsocks, and now things work just fine again.

I guess it had to do with host names with "free" in it being temporarily filtered somewhere, but now things work again.
