I am having problems on my websites with certain things not working. My one site will not grab rss feeds, and the other wont report external torrent information. I thought it night be the allow_url_fopen in php.ini, but it was set to On.

What other options could be affecting this? I am running slackware 11, PHP 4.4.4, MYSQL 5.0.24a, apache-1.3.37-i486-2

I am really lost as to what else it could be...
