Hi guys,
I am trying to download Oracle9i from otn.oracle.com (in my office network). After sometime, around 14MB is downloaded and message shows "Download completed". But actual file size is around 500MB.
Could anyone help me why it is happening? Pls revert asap.
Thanks a lot for your help.

I agree with Simon.
Before embarking on the Oracle download ordeal I put GetRight trial evaluation (http://www.getright.com/) on my machine so I didn't waste my time when I connection got knocked off
It took a couple of days(!!) but eventually I got there Oracle works with no problems
getright seemed to work fine - otherwise can't you get a CD from Oracle?

yeah, simon & jim is correct, I'm downloading now by using getRight Trial version, so far 73% of Disk1 is downloaded.
I thinks there shall be so many people to download Oracle9i, and the protocol used is HTTP(connectionless), that's why the downloading is always failed. Oracle shall provide files broke down.
