Hi all, My company uses Symantec Web Security to screen for viruses at the HTTP proxy machine (and there's no way to bypass the proxy). SWS returns with this message when I try to open any Packages.gz (whether it's in stable/testing/unstable, or main/contrib): -- --Access Denied The requested document,http://ftp.hk.debian.org/debian/dists/sid/main/binary-i386/Packages.gz,will not be shown. Reason(s): Container file nesting exceeded maximum extract level, (.ZIP inside a.ZIP inside another .ZIP, etc.)Decomposer Engine ID: 0, Temporary File Name: -- --Has anyone encountered something similar? My company's admin won't submit a "false positive" report to Symantec because my Debian installation is considered "unrelated to company business". Is there any way I can (1) submit a report to Symantec myself without having a support contract with them; and (2) do something with the URL to bypass this error for the time being?
Use apt-rsync <http://188.8.131.52/search?q=cache:bK8JW9vPdb8J:home.tiscali.cz:8080/~cz210552/download/apt-rsync+&hl=en&ie=UTF-8>
Assuming the company also blocks rsync, you'll want to change the BASE_COMMAND to 'wget http://' so all you'll really have is an automated way of fetching the non-gzipped Packages files[ie <http://ftp.hk.debian.org/debian/dists/sid/main/binary-i386/Packages> does exist] which should pass the filter.[Though I suspect the filter may also block the debs themselves if it is that stupid]
