I can't find the feature that I need. I need to download files directly from a URL on the internet to my TCH account. Usually, I must download the file to my PC, then upload to TCH. However, I live overseas and this method is extremely slow. In addition, the long time means more upload errors, which means I must start again. It's not unusual for a 22Mb file to take 10-15 minutes to upload, and the connection can be reset 2-3 times. No, I am not looking for FTP resume. Something like wget or curl would be perfect.

Welcome to the forums newbit :eek:

Without shell access I don't believe that's possible.

OK, how do I do that, then? I had to reinstall software six times today, and each time took ten minutes to upload. That was a solid hour of unproductivity out of my day.

Shell access is not available on shred servers as far as I know.
