Got it working!!

What I found: 
1. IPV6 uses a different calling sequence in the fsockopen(). It
requires [] around the ip address (which is lacking in all uses of
fsockopen everywhere in SM. It would require some other testing to
determine what format is being used and then build the fsockopen().
2. RH4 defaults to using IPV6 (which is now turned off in modprobe.conf
with "alias net-pf-10 off".
3. used an IP address NOT affiliated with a virtual interface. (That was

I don't know why localhost failed after 1 and 2. There is an entry
in /etc/hosts for localhost (and for some convenience naming of virtual
interface addresses).

BTW: v. 1.4.4 and now also 1.4.5 (new release not yet in fedora-updates
compiled from src.rpm). configtest.php is in 1.4.4+ .
