    The UK Mirroring Service is accessible over HTTP.

    Alternatively ask your LEA to stop being stupid and unblock FTP.

    I've got the same problem with our LEA - all ports blocked except 80 or 8080 :| can't access FTP or even Webmin :|

    Can't even download the URLBlacklists/Phrase lists for Dansguardian :|
