COW Ghostbusting

I've been out of the game since 94-95, but I'm wanting to get back into it
for a bit.

I've had problems with almost every other client under Linux.  When trying
COW, I connect - join a team - and then it sends for a small update - at
which point I ghostbust.  Here's the terminal output.

Any ideas on how to stop/correct this? 

I'm playing on a machine behind a firewall.  Is there some port I need to
free up?
