Troubles downloading Octave from Belarus IP address - sanctions?

Hello Gents,

I am trying to download Octave from Belarus IP address, but it looks like it was banned. Have you just imposed your own sanctions? Thanks for the reply in advance

To my knowledge from the Octave and GNU side no restrictions are in place. Can you download other GNU Software? Maybe the GNU mirror is only broken.

Thanks siko1056. I being redirected to the Ukrainian mirror https://ftp-gnu-org.ip-connect.vn.ua/octave/windows/octave-7.1.0-w64-installer.exe and blocked there. I also have managed to download another GNU app. If there are no restrictions from GNU nor Octave yet, then maybe it is possible to redirect Belarusian users to the other mirror.

Octave is also only user of this GNU service only. Please reach out to the GNU project GNU Mirror List - GNU Project - Free Software Foundation .
