Here is a quick tutorial
on how to download files from Rapidshare simultaneously using Firefox. It is a
simple operation; one must use a different proxy per download. Although it
seems impossible to do on Internet Explorer, it is extremely simple with
Firefox. Although this tip works, the downloads do slow down significantly when
one downloads more than two files. Here are the quick steps:
1. Using the FireFox
browser, download and install the SwitchProxy plug-in for FireFox.
2. Proceed to finding a
free proxy server, I recommend the Steganos Proxies list.
3. Proceed to Rapidshare's
download link and start the download. Do not use a download manager (No
FlashGet), simply use FireFox's download manager by itself. (This is because
Flashget uses your real IP, not the one loaded by the SwitchProxy plug-in)
4. Load the SwitchProxy
plug-in and use one of the proxies. This does not interfere with your current
5. Proceed to a second
Rapidshare download link. In most cases, it should begin a second download.
However, if it reads an error (already downloading), then the selected proxy is
still submitting your real IP to RapidShare. This may not be your fault, as some
free proxies use your real IP.
6. If you get this error,
simply try the next available proxy in the list.
7. To begin another
download, repeats the steps using a new proxy in the list. This can be done an
unlimited amount of times (or until you run out of working proxies).
