Tech Republic Download Problems

By sandres ·
I am unable to download tech republic ftp files. I receive "unable to contact host" messages.

I have read the FAQ and ensured that ports 20, 21 and 80 are enabled.

I use WinXP Pro, with the internet firewall enabled.

First, this is a peer to peer support forum.
While the TR staff monitors the activity from time to time, they typically do not respond to the questions placed here.

Are you having the problems with just a few files?
Or, all files?

At one time, the TR download applet used JAVA.
You may need to have JAVA and scripting enabled for the download applet to work.

The download applet uses a pop-up window. Some pop-up blockers could cause problems with downloads.

From time to time, TR has site problems that prevent some downloads from opening.

You may need to wait a few days and try the download again.

Reject this answer, and let me know which specific downloads you are having problems with, and I will see if I can download them.

If you desire to contact TR directly about this, click on the "Help" button and follow the links through to contact TR.
