Hugo:

in forrest.properties, un-comment
proxy.host=
proxy.port=

and put in your proxy host and port.  After the change, it should download the files without issue.  I experienced the same issue yesterday, after I made that change, I have no issues at all.  Try it and good luck.

ERROR
=====

Unable to retrieve the org.apache.forrest.plugin.input.dtdx plugin.
There may be more information about the reason for this in output
above. The usual cause is that Forrest has been unable to download
the plugin descriptor file that indicates where this plugin is to be
downloaded from. If you are behind a firewall then set the proxy.host
and proxy.port values in the forrest.properties file.

You may also like to check the value of the
forrest.plugins.descriptors property in the forrest.properties file
and ensure that the locations indicated by that value are accessible
(note there should be no spaces in this property).

If all else fails you can can manually install the plugins you need
by downloading the install bundles (see

http://forrest.apache.org/pluginDocs/plugins_0_70/index.html) and unpacking
them into FORREST_HOME/build/plugins.

Note that once the plugins have been installed, they will not need
to be installed again unless you delete them or wish to upgrade them.
