Help!! SSL on Linux hangs

Whenever I try to make an SSL connection from java on Redhat 7.1, the app just hangs. I have tested the code on windows boxes and it works fine.

Is there something I am missing? Do I need to configure my system to run ssl connections from java?

(Also, I can open a web browser and connect to ssl sites, thinking that maybe the firewall was preventing something from happening )

System.setProperty("","all"); outputs just hangs...

Java = 1.4.4_04

This is the code I am running to test the connection. It works fine on Windows, compiles fine on Linux.
