download postgreql problem

P: n/a
I am trying to download postgresql from one of the mirror sites. I get
prompted for a username and password. I try anonymous login and my
password and I get an error stating either the server doesn't support
anonymous logins or that my email address wasn't accepted.

What am I doing incorrectly?

Thanks,
JD

When you login anonymously you must use the username anonymous and send an
email address as the password - you are probably suplying a password that
does not contain an @-sign and so isnot accepted as a valid password.
