Download managers for Solaris

Hallo all,

I'm looking for a download manager for Solaris. On MS Windows i use ReGet, GetRight, FlashGet and so on. Is there any option like that available for Solaris.

Main requirements for the tool is that it should be able to download from a specified URL location, support several download threads, can be scheduled to start downloading at certain time, support partial downloads (when link is broken).

Thank you all in advance for any info about the subj.

Sun download manager seems an option, although I'm not sure you can schedule delayed download.

I am new to solaris, but have discovered some great packages at They install all their packages separately in /opt so it doesn't interfere with anything else on your solaris system. They include a package downloader, which you need to set up, but after that is is plain sailing.

Anyway, you can install gnome, kde and many others from here. Kde's kget is in kdenetwork, which may be something you could use, (i have not installed kde myself in solaris). Probably other offerings are available from here.

My absolute favourite is d4x (downloader for X), but this seems to be linux only at present.
