(SOLVED) "Error 403: Forbidden" when trying to download files from linuxfromscratch.org


I'm at this part of LFS:

http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/lfs/...roduction.html

When I try to use wget to obtain files hosted at linuxfromscratch.org(e.g. wget-list, md5sums, or any of the patches) I get "Error 403: Forbidden".

Here is the full output:

$ wget http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/lfs/...able/wget-list
--2013-01-02 19:03:52-- http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/lfs/...able/wget-list
Resolving www.linuxfromscratch.org (www.linuxfromscratch.org)... 216.171.237.234
Connecting to www.linuxfromscratch.org (www.linuxfromscratch.org)|216.171.237.234|:80... connected.
HTTP request sent, awaiting response... 403 Forbidden
2013-01-02 19:04:11 ERROR 403: Forbidden.


I am able to download the files manually using a browser - however this makes the process rather inconvenient and I can't do it from the CLI. I'm also puzzled as to why wget would receive this error when my browser doesn't.

Any suggestions?
