I'm experiencing REALLY slow download speeds for the quickstart VM. Is there an official torrent or some other method of downloading the quickstart VM?
Can you provide a little more details on what you are experiencing? Its a rather large file and depending on your internet provider speed the download time can vary quite a bit. :)
Usually my downloads are very fast(between 10-12 Mbps). I download stuff daily and it takes just a few seconds to download the files of hundreds of MBs of size.
It's been 2 hours and it's just 0.3/4.8 Gb. This is my 3rd attempt. Other downloads are just fine.
Is there an alternate way to download this package?
@sarish, I'm sorry to hear you are having issues with the download. Are you using a download manager as suggested in our community article on how to install the Quickstart VM? I ask because connectivity issues can happen, I even run into them on large downloads despite paying a premium for 300Mbps internet.
