=configure= : Connection refused when looking for plugins
I've just installed Foswiki on a company server and now I wanted to update the included plugins (and add some extra ones) via
's option to Find More Extensions
However, the Find More Extensions
page states Error accessing Foswiki.org: Can't connect to foswiki.org:80 (connect: Connection refused)
. This is very similar to [[Question225
]]. What is the reason for this error, and how might I solve it?
I'm suspecting there's a firewall issue here because if I try
from the console then I get a very similar error:
Connecting to www.google.com|22.214.171.124|:80
... failed: Connection refused.
I'd prefer to use the
method for updating and adding plugins, but I'm afraid that because of the above issue, I'm stuck with downloading to my client PC and then moving it to the server by FTP. Am I correct?
Is it possible that
is magically using a company proxy to get to the internet thanks to an ENVar that the webserver user's environment (running Foswiki) doesn't have set?
telnet www.google.com 80
- if the connection fails, but the wget succeeds, that would be signs of a proxy, in which case you need to enter the details into configure

Thank you for the tip, Paul. Here's what
>telnet www.google.com 80
telnet: connect to address 126.96.36.199: Connection refused
telnet: connect to address 188.8.131.52: Connection refused
telnet: connect to address 184.108.40.206: Connection refused
telnet: connect to address 220.127.116.11: Connection refused
telnet: connect to address 18.104.22.168: Connection refused
telnet: connect to address 22.214.171.124: Connection refused
telnet: Unable to connect to remote host: Connection refused
doesn't contain any entries containing proxy
. I've now installed the relevant plugins through FTP, so for now I'll just leave things as they are.
