cant use rsync (CLOSED)
« on: February 27, 2009, 08:56:15 AM »
I'm working on a government computer whose firewall will not permit rsync to function, and it seems with the new WSPD12 directive changing firewall settings is a capitol offense.

Can anyone setup an alternative download method?

We would like to find a way for you to get ISIS, but due to the size of the data area rsync is our only practical distribution method. Here are some possible solutions:
    Talk to your firewall team - It sounds like you have already done this
    Have the firewall team or administrator download ISIS for you
    Have an administrator put ISIS on a DMZ machine you can login to
    Use an ssh tunnel to an outside account - check the rules first
    Download it off-site to a portable drive - check the rules first
