    Downloading patches from Metalink - OUI patch 2878462

    Having problems downloading this patch for the Universal Installer (9i).

    Metalink shows this patch as being 45Mb. However the .zip file downloads as 17Mb. When I attempt to unzip it - I get errors that the file is corrupt. Downloaded it twice now - both times with sizes of around 17Mb, but the zip files are of different sizes.

    I have attempted to FTP direct from updates.oracle.com but when I connect (successfully) the connection is immediately closed as I am in the '/' root directory when the process attempts to list files there. How can I FTP to the directory with patch 2878462 in? I don't get chance to cd as the connection closes.

    I'm using CuteFTP for this.

    Alternatively - has anyone successfully downloaded the patch direct from Metalink? How big is the .zip file?

    Any suggestions anyone?

    For doing a FTP from oracle, you need to use ur login name and password, it does not allow anonymous logins.

    Done that - use Metalink name & pwd in the CutFTP connection.

    It connects succesfully

    Never faced such problem, try contacting Oracle Support or ask them to send you the patch on a CD.

    Might have to. Thanks.

    Anyone else suggest why Metalink download 'fails' at 17Mb (Although it appears to succeed)?

    I've had similar problems with other patches, in the end I installed GetRight to manage the downloads. I haven't had the problems since.

    Once you get into updates.oracle.com, you have to cd directly to your patch number before you can list files:
    Code:
    ftp> bin
    200 TYPE changed to I.
    ftp> cd 2878462
    250 Changed directory OK.
    ftp> ls
    200 PORT command OK.
    150 Opening data connection for file listing.

    Yes Jeff, but I never get the chance to.
    Maybe my FTP connection automatically attempts to list files - causing the link to close.

    I'll check up on CuteFTP - Thanks

    Also - anyone - GetRight (???)where can I find that?

    In CuteFTP in your host definition enter 2878462 in "Initial Remote Directory"
