[Bug-wget] Unable to access blastwave

Result of uname -a:  SunOS alien 5.10 Generic_138889-02 i86pc i386 i86pc

My machine is an HP xw9300 with dual 2.4 GHz processors and 8 GB memory. I loaded Solaris 10 directly off the DVDs sent to my by Sun Microsystems. I have also installed Sun Studio 12 and NetBeans IDE 6.1 from the package of DVDs from Sun. Patches are up tp date. Everything works great except that I cannot play radio stations over the internet that only send an audio stream that works only with Microsoft Windows Media Player. Other streams work fine but the stations that I want to listen to are not streaming in other formats. I have a 10.3 SuSE Linux box that plays the Windows Media Player stream that uses mplayer plugins and the mplayer program. I would like to try to install mplayer on my Solaris machine, but here is the problem.

I can bring up firefox and go to http://www.blastwave.org and click on "HOWTO use Blastwave" to get the procedure. Here's what happens when I enter the command to do the very first step:

{root} alien:/sw/newdl pkgadd -d http://blastwave.network.com/csw/pkg_get.pkg

## Downloading...

pkgadd: ERROR: unable to establish a connection with <blastwave.network.com>.

pkgadd: ERROR: unable to download package datastream from <http://blastwave.network.com/csw/pkg_get.pkg>.

I also have a Sun SunBlade 1000 SPARC machine and I get the same result. I'd say that it must be a network problem but I do get to the Blastwave home page or anywhere else I want/need to goto without a problem. My network is supplied by WildBlue, a satelite connection using DHCP that is always on. It's adaquately fast enough and if every way seems to be working correctly. Any ideas?

Thanks in advance,
