I never had any problems with the Install Manager before and the new one
worked like a charm as well. I do not have a proxy firewall or anything, I
just run ZoneAlarm on my PC and connect to the net via a cable modem.
ZoneAlarm dutifully asked if I wanted to allow InstallMgr.exe to access the
internet. After giving it permission, I had no problems grabbing modules
from either ftp.crosswire.org or www.sword.cx. As always, great work.

by grace alone,
