Hey, I'm trying to implement trackback and it has been very troublesome up to now. Anyway, I finally managed to send a trackback ping on my local host, but sending it still a problem.

Now I don't have my local host available, so I tried to find a free host. Up till now I've tried Awardspace and Lycos Tripod, but they both seem to block fsockopen(). My question is: why?
WTH? I became a guru by asking questions!

You should as that from your your hosts, but I'm guessing somekind of a security thing...

Yeah I guessed it had to do with a security risk, but what risk?

That's what you should ask from your host.
