url redirection/cookie problem


Hi all,
I'm trying to download an rpm from rpm.pbone.net. What happens is something weird and hasnt happened on my machine before. I can open every other website but when it comes to rpm.pbone.net it keeps on alternating the following message in the browser's status bar.

"connecting to/waiting for rpm.pbone.net"

and after that it shows the following message...

Redirection limit for this URL exceeded. Unable to load the page. This may be caused by the cookies that are blocked.

Is it something with the website or with my machine? I checked the cookies in the browser and it set to accept all cookies.

Any tips????

if it's any consolation, i'm getting the same error. the site may actually be overloaded, or down for maintainence.

Thats what I thought...since every other website is working. Also i just downloaded and started firestarter. I thought it might be causing it but no...every other website works so rpm.pbone.net should also work. Anyway PEACEDOG...thanks for replying...that relieves me!!!
