Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
about downloading files from this site




Question (Q):


Why can't I download files from this site ?
When I click on a link I get only download page again.

Answer (A):


There could be several reasons why you couldn't download files from this site:
  • You're using a download manager.


    1. Problem: Download managers usually offer to search for alternative download locations. External links for files can be reflected to this site back through scripts or can be linked with another file with the same name.
      Solution: To solve this problem you can disable searching for alternative download locations in your download manager.
    2. Problem: Your download manager can send incorrect referrer, if the clicked link to a file from this site is on any other site.
      Solution: Set up your download manager to send correct HTTP referrer, and when you click on a link the downloading will then be successful.
  • Your browser did not send a referrer.


    1. Problem: Browser did not send a referrer normally if you right-click on a link and select save-as, or if you copy and paste a link into a new browser window (or new browser tab) and press Enter.
      Solution: Left clicking on a link works just fine.
    2. Problem: If you use a mozilla based browser (Mozilla, Firefox or Netscape Navigator), referrer sending can also be deactivated (it is activated by default).
      Solution: To change that setting, browse to about:config (copy-paste bold text to browser's address bar, then press Enter), then search for "network.http.sendRefererHeader".
      If the value is set to 2, referrer sending is enabled for clicked links and images, if the value is set to 1, referrer sending is enabled for clicked links only and, finally, if it is set to 0, it is disabled.
      To enable it, double click on it, then change the value and restart browser.
      If files aren't still downloaded, browse to about:config once more and search for "network.http.sendSecureXSiteReferrer".
      If the value is set to TRUE, referrer sends normally and if it is set to FALSE, it is disabled.
      To enable sending referrer, double click on parameter, then change the value to TRUE and restart browser.
  • Software firewall remove the referrer.


    1. Problem: Some software firewalls remove the referrer from HTTP requests.
      Solution: Removing the referrer from HTTP requests will block any downloads on any site that does a referrer check.
      Hence such options should always be turned off.
