With the cable modem coax disconnected ( but modem powered and router powered ) the passive call returns -66559 and the snippet prints "Connected". For the interactive call, the app launches, pressed the "continue" button and it walked me through it. It finally suggests restarting the modem. The other tests all work as expected ( same as Robert ). This is OS X 10.6.8.
