Sorry about the second email address. It is really the same box I didn't know that it would appear as thorncs at yahoo.com. Any I tried wget ftp://anduin.linuxfromscratch.org/BLFS/svn/b/bc-1.06.tar.gz
And got the following error "Resolving anduin.linuxfromscratch.org ...failed. Temporary failure in name resolution.
wget: unable to resolve host address 'anduin.linuxfromscratch.org' "

What exactly is the error.  For instance, try,

   wget ftp://anduin.linuxfromscratch.org/BLFS/svn/b/bc-1.06.tar.gz

as a quick test.  What error message do you get?

If ping and dns working, that is not relevant.
