Download Manager for Linux

Are you have any problems about internet connection? Are you always fail when you download a film? You must read this. Maybe this article will fix your problems.
First, you know that there are two term in digital world (internet). They are upload, and download. Second, the internet technology. Maybe I will make some post about internet technology. Third, down and up speed.
The third above influence when we download some information from the web. I think I will not talking about what download is or what upload is. Here, I will give you some suggestion about download manager that you will use.
Actually, download manager don't increase your down speed. I've tried it. Two days ago, I downloaded my favorite film. I used a download manager on my Linux machine. Manuals said that you will get the fastest speed. But, the reality, it would not happen. The conclusion is download manager only manage your download process or your upload process.
Now, these are some samples.

FatRat Download Manager

FatRat is good open-source download manager that it is written by C++ programing language. It is built by Library Trolltech QT 4. These are the features:

  • HTTP(S)/FTP/SFTP downloads

  • FTP/SFTP uploads

main window that is the GUI screenshot.

If you are interested, Install it.
Open your console then type
sudo apt-get install fatrat
Once again I remind you. When ever you want to use that command, you must be connected to the internet. If you want more information, click on the title above (FatRat Download Manager).

Prozilla Download Manager

Prozilla is included in the famous old download manager. Based on the internet history, I think Prozilla is the oldest download manager.
The features are
  • Support on FTP & HTTP

  • Support Resume Download Facility

  • It support many connections and connection configuration

  • support for the search FTP and choose the fastest server automatically

  • It have maximal bandwith limitation for the downloading
We need a packet to use Prozilla. Click here to download.
Install the packet.
Before you install the packet, I will tell you about the weakness of this download manager. I am not sure that Prozilla has the GUI interface. Because I never use and I never find the GUI of Prozilla. This condition is compatible for you that want to study about command line.

I hope this can be useful.
