Can't download from Internet to remote IBM NAS100

I need to download Windows 2000 Server SP3 to my IBM NAS100 server which I use for backing up the system using Veritas.  The NAS is totally remote.  When I try to do it, I get an error that the NAS cannot connect to the Microsofts server.  

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Why not download locally to your machine and then upload to the  NAS ?

I hope this helps !

I have the Sp3express.exe file on the NAS but when I run it this is what I get.

SP3 Setup Error
The following error occurred while SP3 setup attempted to download the SP3 files from the Internet:

The server did not respond.

I wonder if it is something in the NAS settings?

Thanks for the reply!  C

It may have a firewall on it.

Also , what browser version is this ?

If IE, the security setting may be set too high.

Thanks for your reply SysExpert.  I finally found a CD with SP4 for 2000 on it and shared my CD-ROM to the NAS so I could upload it.  It worked so now I am downloading 49 updates from Microsoft and so far so good.  Now I have to see if it will install them.  The browser may have been an issue.  I upgraded to 6.0 with the SP4 CD and things seem to be rolling along.

Thanks for all your attention to this.
