After completing an OES installation, I'm runing:

rug up

to get the latest updates from the OES channel. It does eventually
work, but I have to babysit it.

rug It constantly resets my connection, and the only way to recover is
to restart rcd with either a /etc/init.d/rcd restart or rcrcd restart to
start over.

The errors vary; Connection reset by peer, IO errors, download errors, etc.

What gives with the update server? Is it just getting pounded, or is
this my problem because I'm behind a proxy?
