Is anybody having problems with Novell's download site? I'm trying to
download some patches, etc and it is so slow that any method I try
(wget, http, etc) times out.

Thanks

I downloaded most of Zen 7SP1R2 today, no issues.

On another note, I love Novell's versioning nowadays.

GroupWise 7 SP2 HP1a: I guess that translates to 7.0.2.1.a. The R2 on
Zen made me smile. :D

I easily get several hundred K/s from download.novell.com all the time.

Ditto here, and not just when sitting in the office....

But that's on the LAN! :) They really should get off of Arcnet.

Novell's download site has never been slow. Please send screen shots of the
download progress if you think it is slow. Any rumors of slowness are
simply slanders by the imperialist dogs at Redmond, and their lackies in the
M$ partner network. Novell has the situation well in hand, and if you try a
download tomorrow, you'll see that you'll get that 6 MB download speed that
our allies at Comcast talk about.
