I can get that page to load, but when I go to try the links to the .zip
files that appaear toi use a pearl redirection script, we get broken

Upon inspection, the first link:
"FTP Error
 Could not login to FTP server" from Netscape
but a shell based ftp as anonymous let me in. Might be a restriction from
their server at sourceforge.

This one appears to use a pear redirector (probably so that the company
may see who has chosen to dl their software as it will show up in a web
log and possibly withing the perl script if that is logged too.)

By pulling out the redir and limiting to:
We still get the same error, so it is not likely a perl problem :-)

So theis is a tucows problem. They may have moved files without telling
