ftp upgrade problem
I have a problem using the ftp upgrade method for 1.2 to 1.3. I have
manually retrieved the new software refered to in the ftp information. I
use the default options. I can connect manually to ftp.debian.org, but
when dselect tried to do it I get:
Using FTP to check directories...(stop with ^C)
Connecting to ftp.debian.org...
Login as anonymous...
Where things hang indefinately.
A possibly related problem I have is with ftp in general: it doesn't work
with some sites. With sunsite.unc.edu, for example, I get
$ ftp sunsite.unc.edu
Connected to sunsite.unc.edu.
220- Welcome to the SunSITE USA ftp archives!
where it then hangs indefinately every time. I have tried -p but it
doesn't help. It doesn't do this with all sites. I suspect the '-'
character may be involved one way or another, but that is a complete guess
really and I still don't know how to fix the problem. I have to kill ftp
with ^\. Lynx also hangs on startup (^C will kill this one), so mayby
this is a more general type of problem.
If anyone has a guess as to what is going on, what to look for, or what
packages I should try re-installing to make things work I would greatly
