(This is a repost of this thread. Wow, having an official desura group with its own forums as well as official desura forums is confusing. wtf guys.)

I get the following errors in the console whenever I try to install a game:

Console wrote:15:42    Failed to download MCF Header from Us6.dl.desura.com:62003: Did not get any data from mcf server. [18.0]
15:42    Failed to download MCF Header from Us4.dl.desura.com:62003: Did not get any data from mcf server. [18.0]
15:42    Failed to download MCF Header from Us5.dl.desura.com:62003: Did not get any data from mcf server. [18.0]
15:42    Error in MCF validate: Did not get any data from mcf server. [18.0]
15:42    There was an error during the validation process and it has been stopped.: Did not get any data from mcf server. [18.0]

I'm behind an http proxy, but I went through several iterations with the sysadmins to open ports and set the correct rules for all connections that were blocking. Regarding the specific error above, I can even connect to Us6.dl.desura.com:62003 in my browser (which prompts me with a username and password).

Besides installing games every other feature in the client seems to work.

I'd appreciate some help from you desura devs, as I think I've done everything I can on my end.

Edit: To help diagnose the problem, here's a complete capture I did with wireshark of the whole TCP conversation between Desura client, proxy and Desura servers.

Please test the client again now.

Should be fixed.

I re-tested as you asked, unfortunately I still get the exact same problem.

if there's any other test I can perform to confirm whether the problem is on your end or my end, just let me know.

Are you both behind a proxy?

I'm behind a Squid (Squid-cache.org) proxy of which I'm not the administrator.

Steam and over 30 online/MP games work fine.

I'm also having the same issue trying to get Eryi's to install and run.
The only other game I tried was Gateways but that crashed for a different reason.
