Is it possible to set session cookies and post form data [using post], before download. I know it is possible with Offline Explorer Ent.

This would help a lot in downloading from sites like download.35mb.com

Dear Sajal,

Thank you for writing us.
There is no way to set this data in Mass Downloader. You can try to use our Integra product. It forwards this information to Mass Downloader.
Please write us about the result. Thank you.

Best regards,

No it doesn`t work with download.35mb.com, however Linux based softwares like wget and curl can do it quite wonderfully, I mean sending post-data and using session cookies.

I tried Integra with MDownloader and Flashget. I even tried download express. Anyhow it doesn`t works.

Does Offline Explorer Pro download files well from this site?

Thanks,
Alexander

PS. Funny, this site doesn`t allow me to download a file using my IE 6.0. It says I have cookies disabled (cookies are enabled, of course.) Also, it doesn`t allow to use any other browser excepting IE.

I tried with Offline Explorer Pro, with all the form feed data and custom referrer setup, but somehow the download always aborted. However, I did successfully download using wget with this command:

wget --header "cookie: dla=1" --post-data "action=http://download.35mb.com/user/file.txt" http://download.35mb.com/user/file.txt -c

or Curl

curl -b "dla=1" -d "action=http://download.35mb.com/user/file.txt" http://download.35mb.com/user/file.txt -# -o file.txt

And the ocx that 35MB installs is the main concern, if downloaded with the formdata, then the ocx is not needed. So it should logically work with any downloader able to handle formdata.

Yes, 35MB su(ks in this matter, its protection for the site, is quite overwhelming. But they say its neccessary. Seems like they are installing something real bad. But the files are real goodies.. If you know what I mean ;)

PS. Thanks for youre help, even if its not possible with MD.
