hi there,

i'm trying to get my wget to download a file but for some reason it wont


[root@fedora bash]# wget http://optusnet.dl.sourceforge.net/s...n-0.9.7.tar.gz
--16:31:06-- http://optusnet.dl.sourceforge.net/s...n-0.9.7.tar.gz
=> `phpldapadmin-0.9.7.tar.gz'
Resolving optusnet.dl.sourceforge.net... 211.29.132.142
Connecting to optusnet.dl.sourceforge.net[211.29.132.142]:80... connected.
HTTP request sent, awaiting response... 200 OK

[ <=> ] 2,254 --.--K/s

16:31:06 (3.94 MB/s) - `phpldapadmin-0.9.7.tar.gz' saved [2,254]

[root@fedora bash]# ls -ls
total 4
4 -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 2254 Nov 1 16:31 phpldapadmin-0.9.7.tar.gz
