Delayed downloads possible?
|Mark32||01/25/2004 04:54 am|
I`m searching for a solution to download certain threads of a diskussion forum for offline reading. I tried several site grabbers before, but they all failed, because they are way to fast.
I need an option to slow down the downloading, so that only one single page is downloaded every few seconds. Otherwise a server-sided "flood protection" will deny any further access from my IP for hours!
Is such an delayed downloading possible with Offline Explorer (Pro)?
Many thanks for all answers in advance!

Thanks, Veblin, for your kind direction! I did browse through the screenshots, but must have overlooked this "Delay between downloads" option. So now I will give OEP a try!

You can also set random delay there. If you specify the delay in the following format:
Offline Explorer will randomly delay from 5 to 10 seconds after each file download. This simulates human browsing and allows to decrease load on servers significantly.

Thanks, Oleg, that`s a real cool feature -- now OEP works well for me! :)
