After some tries, right when I installed the ZLM 7.3, I was able to download all the Dell updates with the ZLMMirror.

Right after updating it to ZLM 7.3 IR2, it stopped working, annoyingly, it gives no much information on why it does not work.

If anyone has any ideas, please let me know, I only installed the ZLM 7.3 for Dell because obviously we have a huge park of Dell servers and this tool would be utterly useful, but... until know, it is only a huge headache.

Question: Anyone think that proxy could influence anything dealing with those downloads? Even if worked in the previous version?

Following are the details on files and error:
