    Maybe the ancient "ftp"? I'm sure that you can do this with scp/sftp (but this requires you to run ssh, it's not ftp).

    it looks like it sees the correct size of the file but when i type get name-of-the-file, it says:

    local: aurox-10.2-1.iso remote: aurox-10.2-1.iso
    200 PORT command successful. Consider using PASV.
    150 Opening BINARY mode data connection for aurox-10.2-1.iso (4593119232 bytes).

    and freezes

    But you're sure that it isn't the FTP server causing problems?

    isn't wget just a graphical frontend of kget?

    well, anyway, i've tried both of them and none worked. they keep showing that the size of the file is something very different from what i know that it is.

    Eh... Kget is graphical and wget console... But really is sorta weird that it just don't work... Stupid Q, but doesn't some filesystems to not support files over a certain size? You are using a filesystem which supports big files?
