Error - channel-add: Cannot connect to host: connect20.magentocommerce.com

Hi guys,

 

I am working on a magento shop and I got an issue, hoping someone can help me out.

 

I would like to install this extention http://connect20.magentocommerce.com/community/Fishpig_Wordpress_Integration

 

1. I've read that I should use the 'connect20 because my Magento version is 1.9.0.1  IS THIS TRUE?

 

2. After adding the extention key I got the following error

Error - channel-add: Cannot connect to host: connect20.magentocommerce.com

 

What could I be doing wrong? 

 

I attached two printscreens. 1 of my settings and 1 of the error in place.

You may also Like to know what Magento suggest (700 and 666) for permissions is not exactly right and never do as many suggest open your server wide open by setting everything to 0777 !!! or you will be hackable to the whole world!
All folders should be set at 0755 and files 0644 with the exception of /media, /var and some in /downloader they need 0777 for folders only! You can set temporary folders to 1777 and the rest will become 777. Magento does not set a /tmp folder but most servers need one especially for install.
Take a look at http://www.grymoire.com/Unix/Permissions.html
for a better understanding of Permissions. Most servers are Unix type of some sort
