Help needed with DAP, please...

Recommended Posts

Good morning from New Jersey. I am computer literate, but somewhat clueless on if I am using DAP (non-registered) correctly. I've got the .zip file in the download queue and status is "Downloading..." It was that way all night last night and still sitting like that this morning. I had been prompted for userid/passwd and used the numbers from my email. What I can't seem to figure out is if DAP retries, at what interval, and if it's settable by the user. I can't find any preferences concerning retries. It's not paused and an unlabelled field in the lower/middle of the screen says "Simultaneous connections." Again, does this thing auto-retry and if it does, at what interval and if it's configurable?Thanks so very very much for any advice,sj MantelKEWR

Hi!I have searched for this option, too. Although I use DAP quite often, I never had to use this feature and I couldn't find it in the online manual today. I switched to FlashGet (www.amazesoft.com), works like DAP but you can adjust the retry interval.Good luck!regards,Joerg

Joerg,Thanks so much for the reply. Does this basically mean, with Flashget, that once I get authorized, I can go to movies, take a trip to Hawaii, go surfing, etc. and then when I get back home the file will be waiting for me? Or there will still be manual monitoring and/or intervention required.Thanks again,sj MantelKEWR

I'm at retry Nr. 93 right now...But - of course - you have to use the link from the website (not the one from the e-mail...).regards,Joerg

Joerg: I understand using the direct link to the file instead of the link from the email, but how will authorization work? I.e., do I need to tell flashget my conf. id (userid) and password just once at the beginning and it takes it from there?Thanks much,sj MantelKEWR

Hi Mantel,good point. To be honest, I don't know how it works with FlashGet. There 's an option where you can set a user & password for a download, but I don't know if it works like this. But I have read comments by users from a german-speaking forum that where already sucessfull with FlashGet...regards,Joerg
