I was trying to download the latest monthy version of Solaris Express from the Sun website, but it kept disconnecting. According to the site, if you have download troubles you can grab yourself a free copy of the Sun Download Manager.
Sun Download Manager is a small Java application that makes downloading large software packages from the Sun Download Center fast, easy, and more reliable than ever before.
- Built-in file verification system works with Sun Download Center (SDLC).
- Supports resumable downloading.
- Cross-platform, cross-browser support.
- Free of charge.
I was very impressed with this programme on Mac OS X. It's less than 165 kilobytes in size, and a great way to organise not only Sun downloads but other stuff too. Definelty worth a sticky beak if you're interested in a very lightweight download manager for Solaris (really!), Mac OS X, Windows and Linux.
