I have created a local repository on my LAN on an Ubuntu server.
When I clone from other ubuntu servers on the network, I have success.
When I clone from a windows machine, I am getting an "abort: erro: A connection attemp failed because the connected party did not properly repsond after a period of time..."
From the windows box, I can successfully view the repo using the browser.
Interestingly, I get the same error situation when trying to clone from http://hg.python-works.com: * clones successfully from ubuntu * clones with errors from windows.
