Are there any mirrors accessable via https?
« on: 20. December 2013, 08:14:21 »
My company scans all http files for virus and this blocks syncing with the mirrors as the scan times out. Are there any mirrors that use https? or ftp?

all URLs starting with http://ftp are also capable to be accessed directly thru ftp. https you have to try for each and every server. Most are not capable using https. Get the list from here.

Just to add, even the ones that only say http sometimes have ftp access. Example, http://manjaro.mirror.ac.za, simply changing it to ftp://manjaro.mirror.ac.za/ also works. Just play around with those closest/fastest for you and test.
