This question already has an answer here:
I have been trying to get ubuntu one to work (i.e. sync my files), but it keeps saying that it is "getting information" and "please wait". I only have 338MB used on my Ubuntu, so it shouldn't take that long, should it? I read that this was due to a firewall issue. I can't seem to locate the place at which I would change the settings. Where would I go? Thanks.
