Hi, I'm trying to download the setup file to update cygwin using
powershell but it fails miserably:

PS > (new-object system.net.webclient).do
wnloadfile("https://www.cygwin.com/setup-x86_64.exe", "$PWD/try.exe")
Exception calling "DownloadFile" with "2" argument(s): "The underlying
connecti
on was closed: An unexpected error occurred on a send."
At line:1 char:47
+ (new-object system.net.webclient).downloadfile <<<<
("https://www.cygwin.com/
setup-x86_64.exe", "$PWD/try.exe")
    + CategoryInfo          : NotSpecified: (:) [],
MethodInvocationException
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : DotNetMethodException


It works for other URLs and would appriciate any input on the above.


P.S.

Using Wget on this w7works.
