Internet Connection not permitted

Post by mangopearandapples » Sat Feb 26, 2011 10:57 pm

Hi.
When I run the devkitPro updater, I choose the Minimal System and devkitARM and install.
After it gets up to msys-1.0. 11-RC2.exe, it stops and a prompt comes up:
Your internet connection seems not to be permitted or dropped out!
Please reconnect and resume the installation.
I find nothing wrong with my internet connection so why is this happening?
Is there a installer that doesn't need the internet?
Thanks.

There are two main things that cause this issue.

1. Some antivirus products appear to cause the download code to timeout when scanning, unfortunately all we can advise here is to temporarily disable the scanning while installing.

2. The Internet Explorer connection settings are out of date or misconfigured.

Sorry, there's no installer that doesn't need the internet but the current one can download files for later offline install.

you can also download the binaries from the sourceforge page, put them in the same directory as the updater and then run the updater. then it will pick the binaries that you already have downloaded instead of downloading them itself.

Thanks WinterMute and vuurrobin!
I noticed that AVG had blocked out the installer from using the internet but once I allowed it, it worked!
Thanks again!

AVG strikes again, it seems.

If you accept my suggestion, I've found MSE to be faster, and less prone to false positives than AVG, besides being actually royalty-free (instead of just a reduced free version). Replace it as soon as you can.
