Hi,

I recently installed the magento 1.7.0.2. I am trying to install a new theme using the connect manager but when I insert the connect 2.0 key, it gives me following error. I also tried installing other extension which produces similar error messages.

community/magento_classic_theme_free: Failed to connect to 208.86.253.231: Permission denied

Can someone please help?

Kind regards
Sahil

Hi there, you have to allow the outgoing ip 208.86.253.231 in your control panel - that is your server or hosting control panel. If you don\’t have access, ask your server/hosting provider to do it on your behalf.
