Whenever I try to download files from SourceForge the download gets down to the last 100k or less and just stalls out. It alternates between "Waiting" and "Connecting". I had one download do this 62 times! Examples: Meteorologist 1.2.8 and XOOPs.

What gives?

BTW, I used Netscape and downloaded Meteorologist just fine.

Thank you for your report.

We have a similar problem with some files, but the problem is hidden in the Proxies between your machine and the server. Somewhere on the way a proxy cashes the download and then gives you the file for faster downloading. The problem disappears if you have an alternative link for this file or alternative connection to the Internet. Download will be resumed just fine.

This must not be a problem if you download with one segment as your browser do.
