Re: badspammer and cygwin setup

Hi Igor

sorry about that last message text seems to had a few problems

OK - I have tried to download the setup.exe program from cygwin site

as soon as I try, I get rrouted to badspammer.html - why? my PC appears to think this is a spambot

I am using windows XP with SP2 installed

I am also using Norton Internet Security

I have broadband connected to wireless network

I have tried IE 5.0, Firefox, and Netscape all do the same

Any ideas?

Which browser do you use?  Do you use proxies?  Anonymizer sites?  Please
provide more details about your network setup...

On a different note (a general question to the list), any reason why
setup.exe isn't mirrored?  Can the setup executable (with a versioned
name) be placed in the Cygwin package root directory (i.e., where
setup.bz2/setup.ini usually goes)?
