No Updates on Win XP
« on: 2013 September 29 08:41:42 »
Just installed the 32Bit Version on my old XP Horse.
Unfortunately the following error appears when trying to access
th PI server:    https://pixinsight.com/update/: Network error: Failed to connect to 173.205.125.124: Connection refused
Does someone have a hint?

Thanx

Let others learn: What did you do to get it working?

Hello Georg,

sorrs for being that frank. Just after reading your answer an following the link,
 i realized that i should inspect my firewall settings. The freshly installed PI was blocked
by Zone Alarm. After fixing this problem all went flawlessly.
Because i was this dumb i decided to not post "my solution"

Thanks

Robert,
there is nothing "dumb" about your problem and its solution. Issues like this are encountered by others every now and then, and your solution may help to point them into the right direction. (And you helped me learn something new: That there are updates for XP despite being an unsupported platform...  :))
