As long as you realize its the connection you connect to that let you get 4 times more speed and not your internet connection that is boosted 4 times :P.



Why use a download manager, Firefox allready has one.

Oh I see, so rather than just using one of the available download slots on a website you take up multiple slots making sure that other people that want to download from the site aren't able to while you rape the bandwith of the website that you are downloading from, GG.



Understand that people actually pay real money for bandwith, then you come along with yout scripted program and steal the bandwith that they have to pay real money for.



Yeah, GG.



Then you ask why decent download sites go out of business in a couple of months or have to start charging for the service



This is why we can't have nice things. :roll:

Not sure it's any worse to peak and finish quickly than to draw the bw over a longer period. Still uses the same ammt. of overall bw. The big sites that need to avoid things like this conterract it with scripting.



The programs have been around for a long time. *shrug*

Don't get me wrong, one person can't steal a whole sites bandwith, but when someone puts something on the net for download, regular people downloading it would be ok if the webmaster allowed for usual vistors bandwith.  However if your program keeps going its like setting your retry time on an ftp program to less than a second, thats called hammering, and is VERY frowned upon.  This program essentially hammers a website for the download.

Gotcha... You could probably change that setting, though. Least you can in Download Accelerator.

I just use Total Commander to download stuff, works with resume and download list, also has a nice "max download speed" if you don't want to lag your connection.

Most big sites like fileplanet and downloads.com only allow 1 connection for each IP (or is it mac adress) so that these kinds of programs dont work anyways

At least as subscriber you can download from Fileplanet with multiple streams, best thing on FP is you can get a fast download link built yourself to avoid the chainup of people even if you dont subscripe -_-'



Hammering is on most servers encountered with banning ips temporarly if to much request within a few secs.

I dont really use any download managers, except the mozilla one, but alot of sites seem to really hate ppl using them, i assume this is because of 1 user using more then 1 slot as posted above >_<.



long time ago i used go!zilla or something like that, i thought it was teh shiz with resumable stuff and all... was teh shiz for a modem user anyway! ^_^.

You should try NetLimiter. It makes you able to decide how much bandwith you want to use on that program, that download etc. I got Ao on 90% right now, when on MSN and such ;p

There is a subtile difference between bandwidth and throughput. Hosting services don't charge for throughput, and the bandwidth will be used regardless of the amount of throughput used in the process.

I disagree, most demo's you still can download on the free spots, if you don't want to pay for being moved to the front and support the cost of running the site you can get your demo's just a bit slower.



How that for paying customer demos work I dunno, but I would think the company releasing the demo gets some cash pr. download....

Maybe so, but I find it helpful if I REALLY need to download that Anti Spyware program quick for example. That's what it's all about :) Only reason why I use NetLimiter is for those important  downloads that I need downloaded before I go out or what not.
