Does 'host mrblue.localdomain' work, i.e. does that return an ip-address?

Also your cache size is very small, check the venus logfiles in
/usr/coda/etc/ if venus actually managed to start. Coda uses whole file
caching, so with that setting any file larger than about 3.5-4.0 MB
cannot be fetched by a client that is configured for a 4000 block
cache size.
