Agreed. I gave up on download director 8 years ago, and haven't looked back.
FTP has been rock solid for me.

Subject: RE: Fix Central and Download director
I was trying to download the latest cume for 7.1 yesterday and having
troubles as well. In the end, I used the FTP option.
Part of my issue was that java was failing on the PC I was using. But what
was annoying was that I could never get the Download Director to pick up
where I left off, or even just restart the download. Fix central insisted
on rebuilding my download request and putting me off for 2 hours. After the
third time I went to the FTP option.

Subject: Fix Central and Download director
Have been using Fix Central and Download Director to get PTF images to my PC
for years without issue.
Now, have been trying for about a week to get TR8 and cume,hiper,db for 7.1
system. Starts out looking like everything is good using 6 to 8 connections,
then after about 2-3% of first file download the connections slowly drop off
and I'll get Server busy try again later which results in the same thing.
Anyone know what's going on here?
