Wget Download Webmin Module
Download files via Webmin
This modules is a quick hack. The purpose is simple: You have a fa(s)t line in the office, in the institute or university. You want to download large files or many files or both and of course you do not want to download them at home with your single ISDN line. So you just log on to your Webmin on the server with the fast connection and initiate the download. The next time you are there you just burn the data on CD-ROM and it's done.
Here I use it to control a smaller PC (Pentium 166 with Debian for testing) to download large amount of data at night (for example the newest RedHat/Debian/FreeBSD/whatever CD-images. This takes a long time because I only have a single ISDN line so I do it at night. The computer has no monitor so I start these downloads through Webmin :-)
Try it out and send me reports via email!
The installation is quite simple: Login to your Webmin as admin (or whatever you called the adminstrative user) and go to the Webmin tab, then choose "Webmin Configuration". Now click on "Webmin Modules". Give the file in the first box (you can choose any installation method, all should work). Hit Install. Now the module is being installed.
If you have any bugs please send me an email and tell me about. If you have any problems with download or installation of the module, please first read the Download and Install FAQ
