Just to clarify the Mirror address for Apple's Clogged server for OS 9.1.

I found these mirrors with a ping:
ftp://ftp08.apple.com/Apple_Support_Area/Apple_Software_Updates/English-North_American/Macintosh/System/Mac_OS_9.1_update/

or

ftp07.apple.com/Apple_Support_Area/Apple_Software_Updates/English-North_American/Macintosh/System/Mac_OS_9.1_update/

 Both work great, and I d/l all parts (too bad not one file) in less than 5 min. Up to 200k/sec

The sites all require passwords, they do not allow anonymous logins.

For best results, use something you don't have to log in with. Not sure how FTP logging works. I used Interarchy (anarchy updated) and it worked flawlessly. Fetch, or other FTP Apps should also work well.

Can't get in either - with Netscape or Interarchy

It seems as if Steve doesn't want us to download 9.1. I can just see him smiling at the clogged servers. It's funny how he was able to put all those OS X apps and iTunes on everyone's idisk but not 9.1. I think he likes to make us wait for stuff.

I used Transmit to connect to ftp08 anonymously. It worked.

Now I'm pondering whether to risk the install on my Rev.A iMac or not.

Rand,

I've been trying every other download URL listed, and couldn't get in at all. Your ftp site, using Interarchy worked flawlessly, and I'm doing the OS 9.1 update next.

I got great download rates, and NO problems getting in - NO password required.

Thanks!

AAAGGGGHHH!
Apple has pulled the (international) update from ALL the FTP servers
all thats left is a TXT file saying "Z-Mac OS 9.1 Information

Mac OS 9.1 is available for download. For more information, point
your web browser to:
http://www.info.apple.com/validate/a...&lang=Z&geo=uk
Thats is it no 15 part files. What was Apple thinking was going to happen, loads of people have now got broardband net access. Thay will probbaly come back and say thare was 'unprecedented demand'.

Dude, check out my other post if you still want the update and are running an English system. Tells you how to install the US version over any other.

Wow the FTP site is fast! I've been waiting for the multiple download for two hours now, only done with the first 10 through HTTP. FTP is over 10x faster.

Fetch 3.03 worked for me with no login info.

Who cares about single file vs. multi-part when you can just select all?
