http://www.linuxquestions.org – I want to download a file (reasonably large) from say for e.g sourceforge. The problem is some mirrors give speeds of at max 40kB/s and I was considering options to increase this. I considered download managers and seems to work somewhat I experimented with axel and lftp's pget. Now I am wondering how I might download the same file from severals servers (say sourceforge's various mirrors). I tried axel by concataneting all server adresses but not sure if it is working. How do I verify that it is indeed using all the servers specified?? And any other programs u might suggest?? (HowTos)
