I have a VPS with TeX Live installed, and I am trying to update/upgrade. 

My problem: tug.ctan.org is inaccessible to me from that machine, even though it's working fine on other computers (with other IPs). 

I can only access the machine through SSH, so all I can do is command-line based. I have tried

ping tug.ctan.org


w3m http://tug.ctan.org


- time out on the affected machine, but
- work fine from other IPs.
