    4. More Advanced Features
    Nearly all of the more advanced features are available from either the Download Status (to get there, just double-click on the GetRight Logo in your Windows tray icons (See Right) or the Configuration window (to get there, just right-click on the GetRight Logo in your Windows tray icons, and pick "Configuration" from the menu).

    Another good next step is to read the Tips to get the Fastest Downloads.
    Or find some skins to personalize the look of your downloads.

    Can GetRight Upload files too?
    Not yet. But something is coming. :-)

    FileMirrors Information 3: Privacy.
    The FileMirrors features in GetRight are OFF by default. If you don't want to use the features or are concerned about your privacy, leave them switched off.

    FileMirrors is completely anonymous. The server does not use cookies and GetRight does not send any personal information or tracking number when searching (as with any Internet connection, your IP address is available to the server you connect to). When searching (without sharing) GetRight will send the file name and size. When sharing, GetRight will send the file name, size and URL. Nothing more.

    GetRight & Netscape 6 & 7
    Netscape 6 & 7 does not support the same click monitoring methods used by GetRight with previous versions of Netscape. They left out the features that have been there since Netscape Version 1.0. For now, you must either:
  • Right click the links and do "Copy Link Location".
  • Or, the plugins used for GetRight's Opera click monitoring do work in Netscape--with some quirks and differences from the other click monitoring. Just install GetRight's Opera plugins into the ...\Netscape\Plugins directory.

    How can I use GetRight with Microsoft's programs that use Active Setup?
    It is possible (well, it's been done at least once) but it is for the Expert user Only! See instructions.

    A better solution is to see if you can find the file all Zipped up into one file that GetRight can download. For example with IE5, many sites (such as TUCOWS) have the full install available as a big download that's easy to do with GetRight.

    How do I download all the files on a web page?
    Under the Tools menus is the "GetRight Browser" item. This lets you browse FTP sites, or web pages and easily add files to download into GetRight.
    You can also use the "QuckSync" or "Server Synchronizer" features to do this.

    How do I get the schedule/disconnect/dial buttons to be enabled?
    For features that require GetRight to dial your modem, you must have setup your modem and Internet connection information on GetRight's Internet configuration page. This includes the Schedule Downloads, Schedule Hang Up, Hang Up When Done, and Reconnect if Disconnected features on the Download Status window.

    No servers resume downloads for me.
    Not all servers support resuming (but more and more are.) And if you are using a Proxy server, they can cause no servers to resume--some older ones don't know anything about the resuming features GetRight is using. You can sometimes play with the proxy settings (there are some things to try listed in the Help file) and get resuming to work, but you may have to have the proxy server upgraded to get resuming to work.

    Norton firewall and GetRight
    If you had given an older version of GetRight permission to access the internet through Norton Firewall and upgrade GetRight, the firewall will block the new version. It also won't give notice that it is doing so. Try going back through Norton's configuration to give GetRight access again.
    Doing this might help with other firewall programs, too.

    Also, some of Norton's security features may block GetRight from downloading, try lowering the security settings.
