Since the ftp site was mentioned, I tried that on both computers and had
absolutely no problem accessing
and all its directories; I even downloaded.
So here's my suggestion: anybody who is having trouble with this
site might try changing FTP-Passive to TRUE in your lynx.cfg. Of course, I
was having trouble with ftp in lynx in general, but on my laptop, where I
had no other ftp problems, I also could access speakup without changing
PASSIVE to TRUE. Why this would be necessary for one computer on a network
and not another I can't say, but it might make the speakup site work for
Remember to type the url just as typed--don't put an ftp. after the ftp://
or it won't work.
