Perhaps an issue with the site. I'd try gFTP or aria for it (preferably gFTP), so that if you lose your connection after downloading some of it, you can still resume the download from where you left off.

It's an ftp client, similar to FileZilla or SmartFTP.

ftp client?

how do I set up Filezilla?
I installed it and I also went to the Filezilla forum and I'm clueless, again. I'm streching this thread further away from the 6 DVD repository thread....sorry.

To use an ftp client, just enter the host name (ftp://ftp.leg.uct.ac.za/pub/linux/ub...-packages-dvd/), and, if it asks for a user name, either leave it blank or enter "anonymous", and if it asks for a password, I think just an email address would work (or, leave it blank) and you should be connected.

I just tested the download myself from the site, and it's quite slow and sporadic -- and I had to disable my firewall to get it to even start. So, whether you use an ftp-client, your browser, or some other downloading agent, it would take forever, I suspect. It may be best to create your own dvd images from the instructions at How to Make your own Ubuntu Repository DVDs (or, and even easier, it may simply be best to pay the $40 and buy them.) Sorry, but I'm not sure where else you can download premade DVD images of the Ubuntu repositories.

Well, I didn't notice the DebSource link. This is good too, but it doesn't have much software for Debian like it does for Ubuntu.
