thanks for the suggestion, but unfortunately the IP address made no
difference. Could it be that the FTP update route is only available for the
actual original setup of SuSE since the error below seems to point to the
absence of some Install Src record in the FTP directory.
Perhaps FTP alternative sources for updates aren't available for DVD/CD
installed versions of SuSE??
For info I tried the following entries in the YaST dialog for alternative
Server name: ftp.suse.sk (as well as 22.214.171.124)
(with various combinations of leading trailing slashes etc.)
All ended up with the same error message :-(
Hmmm, it is possible, that Yast needs active FTP access, whereas a browser or
fully grown ftp client works with passive ftp.
If you have no high ports open (local firewall, router, proxy, etc), then you
can view the site with konqueror (passive) but yast (active) fails (assuming
my guess is right).
Don't know it for sure, but perhaps it's worth a look.
