wget, download from multiple servers


I was wondering if there's a way to use wget to download the same file from multiple files (like DAP or other download acelerators for windows).

Is this possible?

Not upon it on google, though.

There is no way. You can try aget instead of wget.

hmm... what if you start more than one process with -c option and each one to download to the same file but from different servers? would it corrupt the file?

I think so. Try it and give me the answer.

I think -c option is the same to resume feature.

I don't think it work. Look:

Output will be written to `wget-log.2'.
kuika@skuzye:~/test$ Continuing in background, pid 387.
Output will be written to `wget-log.3'.
