The file download bogs down in Iron browser as well . I reach 1.4 MB and the download just freezes until canceled,
Have just downloaded this 9 MB file, https://www.prorealtime.com/java/Pro...0806145815.jar, just for fun and to to find out whether the download would complete. It downloaded in no time at all, means less than 45 seconds.
Linux Mint 14 Nadia 32-bit, translates to Ubuntu 12.10 32-bit, Firefox 23, 6 MBit DSL connection (not too impressing I guess).
This little experiment may suggest either of 2 things:Code:$ inxi -Fx Network: Card-1: Atheros AR9285 Wireless Network Adapter (PCI-Express) driver: ath9k bus-ID: 04:00.0 IF: wlan0 state: up mac: 11:33:dd:bb:55:88 Card-2: NVIDIA MCP79 Ethernet driver: forcedeth port: d080 bus-ID: 00:0a.0 IF: eth0 state: down mac: 22:00:ee:22:66:cc
- I have just been lucky.
- The network card and the driver that Ubuntu uses does play a role.
Second try finished with the same time, 45 seconds, not 15 (as I initially stated, my mistake). Anyway, I guess I will risk another try in a couple of hours using a different machine having a different network card.

This works for me
and the whole application now runs too... & if I flip back to "reenable scaling" if goes back to stalling & failing..
so this is a solution for me... many thanks TheCog
just wondering what this scaling is and what other effects there will be if I leave it disabled?
Can anyone enlighten me, I will google it too.
Would you think this is disabled on win7? or is it only ubuntu anyway (I like to know what I've fiddled with)
but very pleased I can now run the appl'n again
Ooh! Bingo! It really was a wild guess.
From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/TCP_window_scale_option : To maintain the changes after a restart, include the linein /etc/sysctl.conf.Code:net.ipv4.tcp_window_scaling=0
I think that leaving it disabled will probably not have a noticeable effect. It is supposed to increase the amount of data the far end can send before it has to stop and wait for a confirmation that it has been received. I think I read that some routers have trouble with TCP window scaling, so if you ever change your router, it would be worth trying to enable it again.
