[erlang-questions] Network connections fail when starting rebar app using "console" parameter

Hi All

I have a Cowboy app that at startup time, downloads various files from another web server.  I’m using rebar to create a release, and this all works fine when I start the app using the “start” parameter

$ _build/default/rel/geo_server/bin/geo_server start

But all the downloads fail when I use the “console” parameter

$ _build/default/rel/geo_server/bin/geo_server console

No other network conditions have changed, but now all the HTTP connections fail with {conn_failed,{error,ehostdown}} which clearly is not the case...

Are extra parameters needed when starting the app using “console”?
