I have a computer that is hooked up to the 'net through an Ethernet connection
which goes through a firewall. Because I don't have a separate (big enough)
hard drive on which to download all of the files, I tried to use the RedHat
installer using FTP, so that it only installs the files onto the MkLinux disk.
I entered all of my TCP/IP information exactly as it appeared in the
OpenTransport dialog, and entered the address of Apple's FTP site and the
proxy server when asked. However, this failed to work, saying that it couldn't
locate the server (it never specified what server it couldn't locate). I tried
all kinds of different configurations of nameservers, and using a SOCKS proxy
insted of the FTP proxy, but none of this worked. Has anyone had any success
installing MkLinux DR3 by FTP through a proxy?
