I tried this from my home system. It didn't work. I checked
my firewall logs and the problem was that my firewall was blocking
incoming finger packets. I changed the firewall to allow
connections from the finger port of remote systems. After
that change, it worked fine. I see no evidence that the
USGS system's firewall is selectively blocking access.
