Can you initiate out-bound connections from your IP space? If you have a text-based browser installed, like Lynx, you can try surfing out to projecthoneypot.org from your server and see if that works. If you don't have Lynx, you can try pinging out or initiating a connection on port 80.
Most likely, your hosting provider has blocked out-bound connections. There are some legitimate reasons to do this. For example, it prevents harvesters from being run from your host's facilities. Worth sending them a question about whether they have out-bound HTTP connections blocked.
If you can't get around the block, you can still help with the Project by including QuickLinks on your pages.
