I am a member of an online group of aviation simulation enthusiasts. There are many sites out there that offer acess to thousands of user contributed files to enhance the hobby on simulated flying. I have been an avid member at one such site for several years, and have only now began to experience issues with downloading their files from their web based FTP server.
I am able to access the websites file library, and make a selection. It takes me to a pre fetch page and advises me my download will begin in a few moments. At the moment the connection tries to access the FTP server, I quickly get this error in my default Firefox (32.0.1) browser:
The connection was reset
The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading.
It asks me to try again, and I do so several times within minutes, over hours, over days and over months. I am not successful! I try it on another browser, Torch ... and get similar results but with a less elaborate error message.
No data received.
In an effort to diagnose, I tried Internet Explorer, and get this error:
The webpage cannot be found
No one else at this site seems to have these problems, and they have exhausted any ideas they feel might be contributing to the problem. (See the thread here.)
An AVG Antivirus (Custom scan of all drives) turned up negative for any virii. Malwarebytes reported no malicious items detected.
I can download all these files on my other home computers that I am unable to on this one particular problem computer.
I hope someone is able to help me resolve this annoying issue.
