Alright when I add a mirror URL and verify it what good does it do? it says in the faq that it allowes additional acceleration but how do i allow that? Can i do one pipe from each and not allow two pipes to go to the same sourse if one goes down? Do I need to verify at all? What if the main url doesnt work but the mirrors do?
I know its alot of questions...

Hello JB,
You can manage the number of connections for particular sites at iGetter preferences, Site Manager panel. Currently, you can't limit the number of connections for a particular mirror.

As of main URL failure, you can use the contextual menu function "Set as Main URL" on any mirror. It's a good practice to check mirrors through the "Verify" function before to use them.

Hello Alex,
You can manually add mirrors through the download's "Item Settings" dialog (double click on the download). Then choose the "Mirrors" tab panel and add your mirrors here.

I made a post about this already, but if iGetter supported metalink ( then it would automatically have mirror information for segmented downloads. It's pretty convenient for large ISOs & other stuff.
