Hi Everyone, I'm trying to install the JNI version of rosjava, and am getting connection failure. Anyone have an idea what's going on with the host site? I've tried three different ways: git, git via rosws set, and sudo. I don't know why the sudo approach failed, but I'm guessing it might the same connection issue. Thanks in advance for any help offered. My steps and terminal output are below.

hq@ubuntu:/opt/ros/fuerte$ roscd
hq@ubuntu:~/fuerte_workspace$ ls
hq@ubuntu:~/fuerte_workspace$ git clone -b cturtle_released git:// client_rosjava
Cloning into 'client_rosjava'...
fatal: unable to connect to[0:]: errno=Connection timed out

hq@ubuntu:~/fuerte_workspace$ rosws set client_rosjava --git  git://

     Add new elements:
  client_rosjava    git  git://   

Continue: (y)es, (n)o: y
Overwriting /home/hq/fuerte_workspace/.rosinstall

Do not forget to do ...
$ source /home/hq/fuerte_workspace/
... in every open terminal.
Config changed, remember to run 'rosws update client_rosjava' to update the folder from git

Thanks for the help, Lorenz! You're probably correct that my company's firewall is the cause of the problem. I installed from the debian packages as you suggested and it worked. I'm new to the ROS world and it's great to have help like this. :)

So for me, the checkout of the git repository works. Either it was a server hickup on our side and it is working again or the server is blocked maybe by a firewall or something like that on your side. But if you can, you should install from debian packages anyway. The reason why that didn't work for you is that your package name was incorrect. Try:

sudo apt-get install ros-fuerte-client-rosjava-jni
