For troubleshooting, you need to consider

- look at apache log file /var/log/apache2/access.log,

- test yourself from pc the url : if your browser is not able to download, agent doesn't also,

- understand the OCS deploiement procedure

The OCS deploiement procedure is

- create the package supplying a zip file (.zip for Windows agents, .tar.gz for Linux agents)

- activate the package

- OCS server produce a small 'info' file with instructions for use to agent

- OCS server cut the package in 4M fragments (now optionnal)

- agent download info file (using https) and fragments (using http) = so, you NEED http and https access to /download !

If agent is unable to download info file, it couldn't continue.

(NB : I don't use last OCS server, maybe the deploiement procedure change ...)
