Subject Re: Corrupted archive file?
Date Sun, 09 Sep 2007 15:08:14 GMT
Did you check the size and at least one of the ckecksums?

If it comes from some broken caching, you could try to replace the 
download URL with an equivalent one, hoping that the proxy doesn't 
normalize the url. E.g.

http://archive.apache.org/dist/tomcat/tomcat-5/v5.5%2e17/bin/apache-tomcat-5.5.17.exe

(note the %2e replacing a '.').

Regards,

Rainer
