Downloading tool

I seem to recall some time back that Plusnet had a facility to have them download large files to their network out of hours and then their customers could grab it from there rather than some mirror on the other side of the world. Is this still the case? Did it ever exist? If it still exists how do we make use of it? I need to grab the DVD ISO of Fedora Core 4 at some point over the next week, and figured I may as well make use of this tool if it exists Cheesy

I think what you are refering to is Batch FTP, which I think is still linked to somewhere on the portal, but hasn't worked for some time.

That'll be the one - it doesn't work any more? Oh well, was just trying to help PN out a little...

I'm sure I've seen a number of posts about it not working (with acknoelegements from PlusNet). A quick search of these forums for BatchFTP might bring up some more information.

It's under Entertainment/Tools.
