503 error on wget


I am trying to upgrade to 0.86.2 on my Pi from 0.85.2. The auto update didn't work so I logged in with Putty and tried to do it manually, this is what I get:

wget http://download.repetier.com/files/server/debian-armel/Repetier-Server-0.86.2-Linux.deb
--2017-08-24 08:56:38--  http://download.repetier.com/files/server/debian-armel/Repetier-Server-0.86.2-Linux.deb

A quick Google and it seems that it is to do with wget not using cookies that the server expects? I have been able to download on my win box and pscp it over to the Pi now. Not sure if there is a problem with the site?
