wget fails to download my URL
Hi All,

I have problem downloading a URL using wget, but firefox can able to download it.

The URL is,

So i strongly believe wget can also be used to download it.

the problem with wget is,

[navaladi@localhost ~]$ wget

Can somebody figure out, what is going on with wget here??

Because i mainly want to resume download.!

Looks like it needs a captcha and you're not sending the correct one.

And you need a premium account to download via an external tool. And another thing.... wall-e?

When i copy this URL to firefox it starts the downloads immedieatly.

So i thought, it would be possible with wget too.

Yes it is, WALLE.

Since you can only use download tools with the premium account, it is likely to block non-browser downloads.
