My problem seems different that the other thread with a similar name, but I am a newbie, so who knows?
The latest version of the script keeps trying different mirrors, so I interrupted it with ^C and get this the information below. I don't use a proxy server but it does go through a router, which shouldn't be blocking anything. What to do? Thanks.

Hi,

first: just let it keep trying, and see if it finds one that works. I just tried it myself for test, and the mozilla.isc.org mirror was down, but it succeeded on the subsequent mirror.

second: if it still fails, post the complete session without canceling it, so that i know the version of ubuntuzilla you're using, and so that i can see which mirrors have been tried.

Here is what happens. Thanks!

Hi
well, that is rather strange - i suspect something weird in your network config as far as w3m can see...

can you go to ftp://mozilla.isc.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/releases/3.5.3/linux-i686/ with your regular browser?

how about running the following from the terminal:


w3m -dump ftp://mozilla.isc.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/releases/3.5.3/linux-i686/

Just so--a network configuration problem. I can't browse to the ftp site with either firefox or opera. Here is what the other command yielded:

~$ w3m -dump ftp://mozilla.isc.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/releases/3.5.3/linux-i686/
w3m: Can't load ftp://mozilla.isc.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/releases/3.5.3/linux-i686/.

Thanks for helping!

So look through the various firewall rules you may have to check that you are allowing outdoing connections to port21 (default ftp port), both on your local comp, and on your router.

i don't know what your setup is, and what exactly you did as far as fiddling with your firewall rules... the default on routers, and on ubuntu, is to allow anything out, so clearly you (or someone else) changed these defaults to be more restrictive...

so just poke around and see what's going on. :)
