Reflector returns "failed to rate http(s) download: Download ......" !

Hi there

after about 2 month I've updated my Arch and now I get a problem with reflector

it returns

failed to rate http(s) download (https://arch.jensgutermuth.de/community/os/x86_64/community.db): Download timed out after 5 second(s).

(this url for example) and repeat a lot (not for every url) and i have to metion that I can access this url by browser and also when I put it in the first line on mirrorlist, it works but reflector returns error

it happens when I use -f or --fastest option

what is the problem?

thanks in advance

Hey, it is because the download-timeout is set lower then the time it takes to connect to the server, add this flag to reflector " --download-timeout " and set it to a higher number, you can use 60seconds (it is what i use) for example

the default is 5, in other hand, if it takes more than 5 second to connect to a server, the server is down or I can not connect to it (I'm from Iran, they like to block IPs a lot big_smile)
Dont know why but it happens a lot and because of that it takes a lot of time to reflector takes action

after I posted this topic, I've used " --download-timeout 2 " and find reflector became better and worked but even after, I couldnt reach the highest speed like before!

anyway, Thanks a lot Nikita wink
