Problems downloading files from yahoo groups

Hi,

I am trying to download a few files from yahoo groups.

After it complets 60% - it restarts the download again.

It ends up in a endless loop :confused:

Any work around for this ?

Bye.

ps : probably there is some timeout for the files - any solutions for this ?

Can you give us a link to one of the files to test it.

What news agent are you using?

Not all of them are as good as others…
I believe we had a thread about this a very long time ago (so it may very well be useless now, given the change of technology over time).

This could have something to do with the server not supporting resume downloads, or your news agent may not support it, or it may be your time out settings (in some programs you can change this to a larger value)

The more information you provide (news agent, OS, etc), the better people are able to help you…and quicker too

There is a timeout of 4 minutes :frowning:

Any solutions ?

I am not using any news agent.

http://groups.yahoo.com

I am using IE & the zip file gets caught in Flashget.

Yeah - the groups wont support resume & have a timeout of 4 minutes - after which it restarts the download form beginning. It ends up in circles.

Since i have a 5 - 6K connection - it takes 15 minutes for a 2 MB file.

How will I ever complete the download ?
