I personally find this somewhat hard to believe and see no reason why 
connections to remaining servers should fail.

If you are absolutely sure all of the connections managed by HttpClient 
fail, and no suspiciously looking little green men have been spotted 
messing with your computer, please provide a wire log of the HTTP 
session exhibiting the problem.

Please also consider upgrading to HttpClient 4.0, as HttpClient 3.1 is 
nearing end of life and is effectively unsupported.
