SFTP recursive download tool

sftp default client which ships as part of ssh package doesn't handle recursive copy. Found a really good command line tool lftp . Lftp - Sophisticated file transfer program can handle sftp protocol too. This is being shipped as part SUNWlftpu package.

lftp username@host

To connect to host.

lftp:~> mirror <remote dir> <local dir>

The above command will mirror the remote directory to local directory. For more information for lftp http://tutorials.papamike.ca/pub/lftp.html

Prozilla download accelerator for Solaris / OpenSolaris

Solaris 10 or OpenSolaris by default ships /usr/sfw/bin/wget tool for downloading.  If you are trying to download largefile then its good to use download accelerator so that it can parallely fetch the file and it would reduce the waiting time considerably . I have ported Prozilla download accelerator for Solaris / OpenSolaris  .

Download x86 version

To install run the following command

#pkgadd -d SFEprozilla-2.0.4.i386.pkg

SPEC file is locate at http://pkgbuild.svn.sourceforge.net/viewvc/pkgbuild/spec-files-extra/trunk/
