View Full Version : Kali Linux ISO download failing

2018-03-26, 18:10
I've been trying to download the 64bit Kali iso via http for a couple weeks now. It gets near the end then fails. I've tried browsers, command line, waiting a few days between attempts, etc.

[~]$ wget http://cdimage.kali.org/kali-2018.1/kali-linux-2018.1-amd64.iso
