I am trying to download all the .zip files of a website.
My project seems to find them properly, but OE dowloads them only two at a time.

Is there a setting to specify that I want a higher number of simultaneous downloads? I don''t know yet which exact figure to pick, but I want to experiment with numbers >2.

My number of connections is set at 80. I even added to my URL the following modifiers:
but it did nothing.

Thank you for your help!

If there are 80 channels in the Download panel and most of them show a message like "Web site connected. Waiting for reply..." then it means that Offline Explorer uses all 80 connections, but the server is setup to send only two files at once.

You may also try to uncheck the "Use alternative connection method" box in the Internet tab of the Ribbon.

But if there is a "Ready" message in 78 channels and only 2 download, then I will need more details to reproduce this.
