    slapt-get from behind a uni firewall


    Hello.

    I have just installed slapt-get.

    I need to update:
    Code:
    root@Saturn:~$ slapt-get --update
    Retrieving package data [ftp://ftp.slackware.com/pub/slackware/slackware-10.0/]...Failed to download: Connect failed; Operation now in progress
    Retrieving patch list [ftp://ftp.slackware.com/pub/slackware/slackware-10.0/]...Done

    Retrieving package data [http://software.jaos.org/slackpacks/10.0/]...  Done
    Retrieving patch list [http://software.jaos.org/slackpacks/10.0/]...Done
    Retrieving checksum list [http://software.jaos.org/slackpacks/10.0/]... Done
    Sources failed to download, correct sources and rerun --update
    root@Saturn:~$
    I cant use ftp from behind my uni firewall, http works fine and im not sure about rsync.

    How do I change my sources and what too???

    In the slapt-get FAQ I can only find options for changing proxy settings.

    Thanks much, tis appreciated.

    You might try it again later. I have had that happen to me before. Slackware doesn't have the fastest servers.
