View Full Version : Connection refused to Wine deb server

March 30th, 2009, 07:36 PM
Hi there,

I'm trying to add the Wine dev releases to my package manager so that I can use the latest builds, however I'm getting refused from their sever.

Even if I use a web browser on http://wine.budgetdedicated.com/archive/index.html I get a not authorised message (although is says it may not be available at the current time).

I followed the instructions from the website http://www.winehq.org/download/deb to set up my package manager, have tried both with synaptic and with apt-get.

I'm also not behind a proxy.

Any help would be really appreciated.

Should be fixed now, I had to restart something on the web server.

I have had the wine repository set up for quite a while now and performed numerous updates, but now I am also having the same problem: getting connection refused.

I can't connect to the server anymore either. I also can't import the GPG key as well

Be patient I'm sure it will be all fixed in no time.

Oh yeah, I'm not grumbling! Hopefully it didn't sound like that :)

This now works without problem, it must have been a server issue, perhaps due to traffic, as the new version of Wine had just been released.

Should be fixed now, I had to restart something on the web server.

Hmm, when I follow the instructions on http://www.winehq.org/download/deb I still have permission and access trouble.

Trying to download Scott Ritchie's authentication key gives me a browser window with a Page Load Error, "The connection was refused when attempting to contact wine.budgetdedicated.com."

Running the command line method;

wget -q http://wine.budgetdedicated.com/apt/387EE263.gpg -O- | sudo apt-key add -
Gives me a report: "gpg: no valid OpenPGP data found."

Is anyone else still having trouble with this?

Ok I see it's been a loooong time since the last post.:)

Unfortunatley I'm also having this problem with "Connection Refused".
I did manage to get it downloaded yesterday on my stationary PC, now that I want to install it on my notebook I get this error:

W: Failed to fetch http://wine.budgetdedicated.com/apt/dists/hardy/Release.gpg Could not connect to wine.budgetdedicated.com:80 ( - connect (111 Connection refused)

W: Failed to fetch http://wine.budgetdedicated.com/apt/dists/hardy/main/i18n/Translation-en_US.bz2 Could not connect to wine.budgetdedicated.com:80 ( - connect (111 Connection refused)

W: Some index files failed to download, they have been ignored, or old ones used instead.
W: You may want to run apt-get update to correct these problemsI don't want to push anyone to work... just a notice. I'll wait for repo to be online whenever that is. I Love Ubuntu and great work Wine Team. =D>

I'm also getting the error. Done it before, but today, it's a no no. I assume it's more a matter of waiting for it to be accessible that something I can do to fix it.
