What's going on...

Hello every person over there and have healthy for all of you!
When I have downloaded the ISO image from the homepage download page, and tried to verify by downloading the key of wget -O sparkylinux-iso.gpg.key, I have always received the message of ([]:80... unsuccessfully: Connection refused.
What's going on and what can I do for verification.
Thanks in advance.


Hi. Well this is interesting. I don't know how are the main servers configured, but I have the same problem using Wget:

moros@dnadesigned:~$ wget

At the same time I have no problem downloading the key with a browser (Firefox in my case).

@Pavroo, can you look at this? I don't think it's supposed to work like that...  :P
There's no such thing as "impossible". :)

Right!! The browser upgrades the request from HTTP to HTTPS on demand, that's why it worked in the browser. I didn't notice it until now.  ;D
