RE: What is the proper mailing list for server issues?




Agree, it's nothing to do with Cygwin.com.

Check for a firewall on your local machine.  Check your home router to see if it has a firewall with restrictions.
Perhaps you're passing through a proxy server or firewall at the ISP?
Try traceroute or wget to analyze what site you're really attaching to.

This is _your_ problem.  Something has caused you to not be able to reach cygwin.com properly.  What IP address does cygwin.com resolve to?
Does using the IP address directly work for you?

$ ping cygwin.com

Pinging cygwin.com [209.132.180.131] with 32 bytes of data:

Understandable but nothing we can do from here.
