I guess wget works with http also. Are you not retrieving the iso and 
not sending ftp?

The file is working fine for me and is pulling in the file at speeds 
varying from 300k/s down to the 100k/s ranges and is 17% complete since 
my previous posting.

I could not see someone not allowing one to pull in files from ftp 
sites. Sending files out ftp though might be a security risk to the 
organization. No doubt some admins would limit ftp incoming though.
