Can I schedule a download manager?

Postby Kittum on Tue Mar 31, 2009 8:59 am

Hello, I am new to Linux and I like the experience.

I live in a remote area in Oklahoma and my Internet service is via satellite. Due to limitations of satellite Internet service, I am required to retrieve large downloads between 03:00 and 06:00 in the morning.

I am needing to know what download manager I should use and how to schedule it to meet my needs.

Thank you very much. :D

you could use at and wget from the command-line or for a gui, d4x seems like it might be what you're after
