FTP down!
« on: March 12, 2010, 11:20:50 pm »
Anyone out there who can get the FTP server going?
I've been trying for days now, without being able to connect to ftp://ftp.freepascal.org

Would be great to get it up and running again, so I can update my Lazarus/FPC installation...

Thanks in advance!

This link does not work for me, at this moment.
However, download of new snapshot works fine from here: http://www.hu.freepascal.org/lazarus/

Or you can go directly to this ftp site: ftp://ftp.hu.freepascal.org/pub/

Now I see where the problem is. This forum adds "http//" in front of the ftp link! You must remove it manually, to get the link working.

It should work if you use 'Insert FTP link' in the message editor.
At least it does for me: ftp://ftp.hu.freepascal.org/pub/

I only get "Unable to connect", the IP-address is 193.224.143.26, right?
The web-page Zoran suggested doesn't contain the package I need, I have only found it on the FTP, which is unaccessible to me.

I have no problem connecting whatsoever using either URL or IP address.
Could it be that FTP (port 21) is blocked on your system?
Can you ping the FTP server?

FTP'ing any other servers works fine.
When ping'ing, I get "Destination host unreachable".

Sorry all! 
The error was on my end, after all... For some reason the IP was blocked in my firewall.  :-[
