I’ve got a problem with Flashget running on Win Server 2008. I used to be able to download with Flashget on this same Win Server 2008, but since last week the program could no longer download anything (seems like it can’t make connection, ‘cos it shows error after a few attempts). I’ve tried Orbit download manager but it also cannot work. I dunno whether some Windows updates has block the download managers from working or the security settings are accidentally modified.. Hope someone could help me to sort this out.
Have you checked if there are any firewalls blocking the download managers? What error do you get? If you get Connection Refused or Connection Timed Out it can be a firewall. Can you download the files using a browser or doesn’t that work either?
