Downloading a test file via http -

Good Day

I have recently setup IPFS on my Linux Mint 19.1 with the desktop node. All seems to be running fine. I added a folder with my public pgp keys as text files.
When I attempt to download via the https://ipfs.io/ipfs/[hash] I get an endless “waiting for ipfs.io” message in the browser

Any ideas as to why? The desktop nodes traffic in both directions.

Thank you!.

I got also a lot of “waiting for…”

I have done that, tried different browsers. Eventually I get the gateway time out.

I am still having no luck with this. it is a 2k test file with my pgp public key. Here is the URL. Can someone see if they get anything but a timeout?
