I have turned debug on, and Xed the password out of the result...
$ ./mprime -d
Mersenne number primality test program version 23.5
Sending result to server for exponent 18080627
host = mersenne.org, port = 80
IP-addr = 64.66.6.250
GET http://mersenne.org:80/cgi-bin/pnHtt...DD1ADB296E68AA HTTP/1.0

Error in recv call: 104
ERROR: Primenet error 2252
The FAQ at http://www.entropia.com/ips/faq.html may have more information.
Will try contacting server again in 60 minutes.

I had a chuckle when you said "The 23.8 sources are not available for download". I guess the source is now closed for some good reason... LIN for LEA maybe?
(http://primes.utm.edu/glossary/page.php?sort=Illegal ... We would not want to generate an illegal prime by mistake would we :-)

Re: improvements to the mprime source. I would love to make the software a rpm package, with an automatic cron job to restart mprime after system shutdowns. (maybe even a GUI/form for the text input challenged. )
