I was able to download the drivers just fine, but obviously can't test as I don't have that printer.

Here is the link I used:

http://www.epson.com...-32&detected=No

Let me know if you are able to try again, and the results.

I agree with Ron, specific error messages and/or screenshots of what is happening would be more helpful in the long run.

Are you able to download other files just fine? If so I would be tempted to contact Epson support for assistance rather than getting some random person on a random forum online (e.g. me :lol: ) to send you a copy.

Also you could try downloading it from a different computer (i.e. a friend, neighbour, work, etc) and copying it across.

Hi guys

The following is the error message I get, even if I download from other people's computers:

ERROR
The requested URL could not be retrieved

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The following URL could not be retrieved: ftp://ftp.epson.com/drivers/epson11075.exe

Squid sent the following FTP command:

RETR epson11075.exe
and then received this reply
Can't build data connection: Operation already in progress.This might be caused by an FTP URL with an absolute path (which does not comply with RFC 1738). If this is the cause, then the file can be found at ftp://ftp.epson.com/%2f/drivers/epson11075.exe.

Your cache administrator is root.

Hope this will assist

What is squid, are you using linux? What browser are you using?

Again I am able to download it perfectly fine, even from your direct link in post #6 (above). I am using IE9 on Win 7.

Squid looks like a proxy server and web cache daemon:

http://en.wikipedia....Squid_(software)

I believe this to be causing your issue, are you able to temporarily disable the Squid server for testing and see if the download works properly?

Sorry to be a pain but "your providers" are the ones who need to fix it. It is not allowing downloads through properly. Even if someone did send you the printer driver separately, it doesn't resolve the issue properly.

Thanks for your help. Unfortunately the providers have also pushed it back to me.

I remember sometime I had the same problem you came to my rescue. You downloaded the drivers for me and I just installed them, they were for winxp as well but video, sound and network if am not mistaken. Please help again...? :confused:

I have just looked and found the thread you were talking about. It's here: http://www.geekstogo...etwork-drivers/

I'm going to explain this to you clearly. We are not a download service. You have a problem on your network in that the squid server is configured incorrectly and not allowing you to access some downloads correctly (it seems FTP downloads). You need to make arrangements to have that problem resolved. As I know nothing about squid servers I am unable to assist you with it. If you do want assistance with it, you may have some luck in our Linux forum (as squid server seems to be mostly related to the Linux platform) or consider having an experienced professional come and give you a service visit to resolve the problem (which will likely cost a few dollars).

In the meantime please take this as a warning not to ask for any more downloads from our members or staff. In the link above it was done as a once-off for you which proves my theory correct.

Regards

Troy
