Try using a regular FTP client, instead of a browser.
If you cannot get the tz distribution direct from elsie, you can try
munnari.oz.au (in the pub directory) - there you can expect to wait
between hours and (occasionally) days after a distribution is available
on elsie for it to appear, but unless the distribution on elsie lasts only
a very short time, it will show up on munnari eventually (and if the elsie
one vanishes quickly, its replacement will appear on munnari)
