Can't access autopackage.org website
Hi all -
I have a very odd problem here - I am unable to access the autopackage.org website. ( I'm using Fedora Core 5).
When I try accessing the site using Firefox, there is no response.
Other sites are fine (I always see the rd ("received)" modem light flashing away), but with this site - nothing.
So, I tried a nifty thing - I downloaded a package called "packer" (helps to automate package creation). It is available as an autopackage (which means that it tries to access the autopackage website). From that, when it tried to access the site, I got the autopackage IP address (126.96.36.199).
I pinged that address, and got the following - (the "from" IP address is different - not sure why that is, but anyway ... )
From 188.8.131.52 - icmp_seq = 1 packet filtered
From 184.108.40.206 - icmp_seq = 3 packet filtered
From 220.127.116.11 - icmp_seq = 4 packet filtered
.... and so on.
So - anyone know what may be happening here? The "filtered" looks as if this site is deliberately blocking me, but I'm not spamming them, sending malware or anything - I just want to download their software. I may have to download it in an internet-cafe ....
Very many thanks in advance - bye for now.
