How do you connect to the internet ?
Do you have a direct connection ? or connect through a proxy ?

Provide a little more information about your nework configuration.

If you connect via a proxy server try this :

koodoo@knapsacker:~$ export http_proxy=http://<i.p. of proxy server>:8080
koodoo@knapsacker:~$ export ftp_proxy=http://<same here>:8080
koodoo@knapsacker:~$ aget

Hope this helps.
