  • The best solution I've found so far for an environment where there is a central headless "downloading" server & multiple satalite machines connecting to it with different operating systems. I highly recommend.

  • Great tool! I don't know of any other download-tool which is split into server and client. Ideal to be run on nas boxes (arm and armel architectures supported), while clients manage it from remote PC's - best via web-interface.
