http://www.snort.org/downloads/snort-daily.tar.gz = WORKS
http://www.snort.org/downloads/snortrules.tar.gz = WORKS
http://cvs.sourceforge.net/cvstarballs/snort-cvsroot.tar.gz = FAILS

Don't think I'm going to try anymore... way to tired to carry this on. If no
one really cares that there "is" a difference, then I don't either and I won't

no proxy, no nothing, same problem both machines, two downloads work and the
exact some one always fails. What's wrong with this picture?
