I can't get FTP behind our firewalls, but I can get HTTP. Plus, HTTP has restartable downloads now, so there's no real benefit to using FTP (provided that you know the name of the file to download, of course).|
Ideally, I'd like to be able to filter out the FTP mirrors from the mirrors list, and only select from one that uses HTTP to distribute copies. However, given that I can't do that from the current list of mirrors, I pretty much always go back to eclipse.org to get new downloads.
So a suggestion for the future would be to allow a way of downloading new installs (as opposed to the update manager) so that any mirrors presented were easily identifiable as to whether they were FTP or HTTP.
Just a thought,
