I'd like to know exactly where this error comes from, and which file or  
folder it can't find (or perhaps there is a permission problem?

Sorry, I did and forgot to mention - no response:



so it doesn't look like anything is coming back.  Doing a traceroute  
shows inconsistent results, but never a reply from the final host,  
although it could be configured to not respond to pings.

No error from mapping the account, which I assume does go to the same  
server.  There is just this single popup with the error, but no button  
other than OK.

Yes - that's why I was wondering if anyone else has seen this, or if  
anyone else can confirm they are successfully getting BOA credit card  
transactions through ofx direct download.
