I have solaris 10.
wget works fine when I use it for http but doesn´t seem to work when the url leads to a ftp server. It says it doesn´ t get any answer:
(try: 3) => `screen-3.9.4.tar.gz'
Connecting to ftp.gnu.org[220.127.116.11]:21... connected.

==> PORT ... done. ==> RETR screen-3.9.4.tar.gz ...
Error in server response, closing control connection.
It does this for all ftp servers I tried. when I try the url with wget from linux, it works fine.
