online_update failed - ERROR(Media:connection failed)[Connect failed]

I have using SUSE 9.1. I check everyday for updates to make sure the server is secure.
Yesterday I tried to update the server with the command online_update an got an error

ERROR(Media:connection failed)[Connect failed]

Can anyone tell me what I should do to correct this problem?

Try to select another server from the pulldown menu. Sometimes your favourite server is just down.

I've tried to select other servers, but I get the same errors.

Are you sure your network is up and properly configured? Did you change something on the YOU server list?

I change nothing on the server.
My ADSL modem went out of order, so I'm using an new one.
I can connect from remote to the server. When I'm logged in on the server I can get on the Internet.

So I didn't change settings on my server, but I have a different ADSL Modem. But that should not be the problem, or..?

Hmm, I am running out of ideas. Have you checked the support database? I found this for example:

I have a look.

I turned off my firewall for a test.
But that also has no effect.

Can anyone help me?

I found the problem. I had contact with someone in the USA and he had the same problem.

I tried serveral different servers and only one was working. The person in the USA had the same problem. It looks like that SUSE/Novel have problems with there servers.

Thanks all for your support
