In OSX10.1.5 connected to Easy News with log in path as: and user name and password filled in, downloads are added to queue but downloads will not begin no matter what I do. First download in the queue says "waiting" and the rest say "pending" and I can see iGetter trying to start but nothing happens. Any ideas?

Plug ins for Mozilla

Ok, I checked the "about plug ins" in Mozilla help and there are no igetter plug ins there. What now?

Downloads won't start

Ok, I tried using iCab and the same thing happens. iGetter attempts to connect but it keeps showing "waiting" in the window. I think I've set it up incorrectly, but I can't figure out what to do next. Oh, well. I'm giving up. Since I do most of my downloading at Easy News, I'll get their customer support folks to recommend a download manager for my mac, at least one that I can understand how to set up.

Hello Yossarian,
As we saw is a UseNet service, so if you want to use iGetter with it first check if their servers support HTTP or FTP Internet protocols. Otherwise you will need newsgroup software instead of download manager. If the downloads are from HTTP/FTP locations the servers may require user's login info. Try to enter your user name and password for the proper path/server in the iGetter Log In preferences.

Because requires registration we regret that we can't help much. Instead ask them what requirements they have to download from their servers.

iGetter, mozilla 1.3a, and EasyNews

Ok, I took your suggestion and contacted EasyNews. They use HTTP protocol. I tried preferences/log in with and both with and without my user name and password. When I click on a url to download, I get the message that the download has been transfered to iGetter but the iGetter window keeps flashing between connnecting and waiting and the download will not begin. Any other ideas?

Have the same Problem with Easynews BUT only with iGetter for OSX!

Get iGetter for OS 9.x and run it under classic with correct Path/Login/PW!

EasyNews uses standard HTTP authentication. Using the ZipManager interface, it downloads from Direct downloads come from

Long and short of it is this, you need to add both of the following entries:

Make sure you type them in their entirety. For some reason, if you rely on iGetter to prepend http:// and append / it will not work.

Good luck.

On the subject of easynews, does anyone else find the problem that when using igetter, easynews shows a much larger download in the download quota, than what has actually been downloaded???
