Description ed johnstone 2001-10-31 22:36:47 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.76 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.2-2 i686)

Description of problem:
Even though /etc/lynx.cfg is configured to work with the http_proxy, I
believe it is
failing with the ftp_proxy.  I have the same information listed that I am
using on a 7.0
box, but on the 7.1 box when I get to the downloading with lynx it hangs
and times out.

I have successfully configured "ncftp" by setting "passive=off".

In addtion to having the correct
"ftp_proxy:http://some.server.domain:port/,
I have tried the last line of lynx.cfg to read either "FTP_PASSIVE:TRUE",
or "FALSE".  Neither one works.  It still hangs.

I have successfully configured lynx on 7.0 to download from Ximian.com
but not with redhat 7.1

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.At the prompt, as root, type: lynx -source http://go-gnome.com/ |sh
2.After connected, hit "Enter", then choose a download site.
The following message appears:
   I  am now fetching the Ximian Desktop graphical installer. This
can take a few minutes, so please be patient. 
3.After hanging, the folIowing error appears:.

red-carpet.ximian.com: Connection timed out
Error!

A required file could not be downloaded from Ximian servers.
Please mail distribution@ximian.com with a description of the
problem, including any error messages that were displayed.
go-gnome: 4.0.2 (Tue Oct 30 16:24:37 EST 2001)

I am now fetching the Ximian Desktop graphical installer. This
can take a few minutes, so please be patient.

mirror.dulug.duke.edu: Connection timed out
Error!

A required file could not be downloaded from Ximian servers.
Please mail distribution@ximian.com with a description of the
problem, including any error messages that were displayed.

If you need to use an http proxy, you will need to set the
http_proxy environment variable:
export http_proxy="http://host:port/"

The file was being downloaded from
`http://mirror.dulug.duke.edu/pub/ximian-gnome/installers/installer-rpm-glibc2.2-i386.gz'
into `/var/cache/redcarpet/installer-rpm-glibc2.2-i386'.
	

Actual Results:  That's it.  Nothing

Expected Results:  The download should have started

I am checking again whether this lynx download really did work on RedHat 7.0.
I may not have, I may have done a manual installation.
I will get back and may ask you to disregard this bug.
Give me a few hours.

Comment 2 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2001-11-05 14:22:37 UTC
This appears to be a problem with their connectivity being too slow and/or the proxy being broken - works here (both with and without a (RH 7.2/squid based) proxy). 
 


Comment 3 ed johnstone 2001-11-05 14:47:37 UTC
Yes, must be a proxy problem here with my firewall.
Once, I manually installed the "installation" program,
the rest of Ximian downloaded, and installed fine.

Thanks for closing.
