I am trying to run/sync bitcoind -server for the first time on linux and it is not connecting

end of Debug log gives me this...

Added 14 addresses from ::: 0 tried, 91 new
93 addresses found from DNS seeds
dnsseed thread exit
trying connection lastseen=117.2hrs
connection timeout
trying connection lastseen=354419.7hrs
connect() failed after select(): Connection refused
connection timeout
trying connection lastseen=96.2hrs
connection timeout

Does anyone have any suggestions. Is it perhaps a server firewall issue?
