I am downloding the iso's with MS explorer 6.0 (sorry)
I am behind a proxy-server (I have no direct access to port 80, nor access
to FTP)
I've tried jigdo also, even with the proxy settings I can not get access.
I've entered the proxy settings, found in the .pac file, as options in the
jigdo-lite settings file.
I can not pass through te proxy. I've tried different parameters.
