When I attempt to connect to the Zebedee server with the client, the only
error I get in my logs is the following:

zebedee(266/215): 2001-06-05-16:37:06:  waiting for client connection
zebedee(266/215): 2001-06-05-16:37:07:  accepted connection from 127.0.0.1
zebedee(266/215): 2001-06-05-16:37:07: ERROR: server refused request for
redirection to titan:443

My configuration files are below.

The name of the box I am running the Zebedee server on is named Titan, and I
am attempting to connect to it on port 443 (on Titan).  I believe this error
is due to my misconfiguration of the Zebedee client-piece.  Could anyone
tell me how to fix this?

Thank you!
