Download Mandriva 2011 rpms in media/main/release/ on Windows


Hi
I have a Mandriva 2011 linux box at work that i am not allowed to connect to our work internet network (boo!), only Windows boxes allowed, so cannot use the "Configure media sources for install and update" option.
It was no problem with the previous mandriva iso's as all the rpms were on the iso which was about 3.8G.
Now that the iso is only 1.6 i need to try to work out how to get the other rpms. I know they are all on:
ftp://mirror.internode.on.net/pub/ma.../main/release/
but how do i download all of them on Windows XP without having to right click 'save target'?
Thanks!

Use an ftp program like FileZilla for example.

Thanks, i have downloaded that but not sure what i need to enter in the Connect To Server box that requires:
Server Address
Port
Administrator Password



is server address just mirror.internode.on.net
or more? port is 21? password - do i need a internode account?

After entering in what i think i get:
Connecting to server....
Connected, waiting for authentication
Connection to server closed.

???

Thanks

All you need to enter is this in the Host box: ftp://mirror.internode.on.net/pub/ma.../main/release/ then click the Quickconnect button. Once you have the file list, right click on the release folder and add to queue.
