Projects / GTransferManager


GTransferManager (gtm) allows the user to retrieve multiple files from the Web. These files can be retrieved in multiple parts, and each part retrieved on a separate session when the user is connected to the Internet. This is most useful to users with dialup connections. The program performs these tasks using wget as its backend.

            Looks very promising, but doesn't work for me
            I'm trying to use GTM with Galeon 1.2 and wget 1.8.1, and I
            am unable to download any files using ftp or http (I get an
            "unknown error"). Apparently the latest version has problems
            with wget 1.8.1, so I eagerly await an official release that works
            in my environment.

            If only it worked
            I can't get this thing to go - gives me some "CORBA user exception" error every time I try to run it.

            Very useful
            This program is a real gem. Keeps track of all the files you've downloaded, letting you fetch them again after you accidently delete them. :) No more browseing through your history to figure out where you got that RPM. Drag-and-drop as an applet works as well.
