i am trying to download cygwin inorder to try out android ndk development on windows.
The problem is i have a slow internet connection and it requires its own online installer yet the download keeps getting interupted.
Question
How can i resume cygwin downloads without having to start from the beginning

whyare you using Cygwin? Isn't NDK available for Windows too? –  Sathya May 5 '11 at 17:53

cygwin is needed for compiling by the ndk build system under windows. –  Dr Deo May 6 '11 at 8:43

Enter in the same local download directory you did before. Every time you stop and start it should pick up automatically where it left off.

If you need help follow this thread http://cygwin.com/ml/cygwin/2001-11/msg01930.html

its suprisingly starting from the beginning each time, Meaning that the 600 mb i already downloaded is totally wasted. :( –  Dr Deo May 5 '11 at 11:03
    
what mirror are you using? –  Blomkvist May 5 '11 at 11:12
    
cygwin.parentingamerica.com I am going to try an html spider to scan their site and download anything it can. –  Dr Deo May 5 '11 at 11:24

There are three other Canadian mirror sites you could try mirror.csclub.uwaterloo.ca , mirror.cpsc.ucalgary.ca and cygwin.skazkaforyou.com It could be that the link between the http you were using and the main ftp is having issues. –  Blomkvist May 5 '11 at 11:48
