It works fine, here.  I'm guessing you have some kind of ISP or proxy 
issue going on.

It doesn't.  I think you need to fix your system configuration.


So, basically:

sudo rm ${HOME}/.ICEauthority

for the HOME directory of the user running mythbackend (and/or 
mythfilldatabase).  Then mythfilldatabase will likely succeed--at least 
until whatever is breaking your configuration breaks the ~/.ICEauthority 
permissions, again.
