weird PEAR wget update problem: possibly iptables?
Hello, I am trying to get the newest PEAR for my PHP installed on my Fedora Core 3 machine using the go-pear.org site. I got a member of the PEAR developers to help me but we came across a strange problem.
I can wget http://pear.php.net/ just fine but if I try wget http://pear.php.net/get/pear-stable I get no response from wget!
I naturaly tried a tcpdump so I could see what was happening at the IP level but I am still confused. Both wgets have similar WIN and ACK (first two lines from tcpdump - myIP:portX > pearIP:http then pearIP:http > myIP:portX) responses with the exception that the wget http://pear.php.net follows its WIN, ACK packets with content where as a connection just can't seem to be made with the wget http://pear.php.net/get/pear-stable.
Can someone please help me? I am running out of people to ask.
