Download from where? FTP works well if the place you are trying to download from supports FTP.

try wget

i.e wget + http:// or ftp:// address

wget http://rpm.livna.org/livna-release-7.rpm

or wget which is kinda universal (meaning it works for HTTP(S), too)...

P.S. Darn, Leigh... this was for a split second :D

thats exactly what I needed to know.

to specify what directory the file will end up would I use this for example:

wget http://somefile.rpm /root

Don't forget that you need to specify where it is - so a little more generic would be:

wget http://server.domain/folder/file.name

if you don't have a DNS resolver up and running for some reason you will have to use an IP instead of the hostname.domain format.

All I really want to do is download the ISPConfig package from: http://superb-east.dl.sourceforge.net/sourceforge/ispconfig/ISPConfig-2.2.14.tar.gz


and place it in this directory:

/root

how can I use wget to achieve this?

links is also a really nice text web browser:

su -c "yum install elinks -y" [code]
Then if you want to view a page just type:[code]
