Currently have a strange situation:
wget only works for one user on a system -- and root isn't it.
There are three user accounts, user A, B and root. User A can use
wget with no problems. User B and root receive connection timeouts with
wget. This results in similar problems with
apt-get -- user A can successfully install updates, while user B and root get timeouts when the files are initially downloaded.
Any ideas? This is a Ubuntu system. No firewalls enabled.
