Do you mean via tcp using "open socket"? One might infer from the
above IP address and port that it is tcp to an http port.

No. Well, not with simply an "open socket" command. If it really is
http, then you need to open the port at the proxy. (Well, some
firewalls will forward requests to its proxy, so... maybe.)
If it is not http, then you will likely have to deal with the firewall
and firewall keepers.

Maybe somebody has figured out how to provide that service.
