Will the moran please stand up. !!! (stolen from m n m). Okay thats me. I have been going nuts on why I could not d/l the freebsd onto my system. Well as I looked thru the sonicwall logs I noticed a message that said ftp dropped rule 8. rule 8 said no no to ftp. no clue on how that got there. don't recall doing it. Don't recall '85 and parts of '87 either so who knows :-) Anyhow its working after pulling head out of anus . Appreciate the efforts. sigh I hate when I am the stupid one.
