I'm looking for a download manager that acts as a server. I'd like to have this download manager server running in the bacckgound. Maybe on another computer. The perfect solution would run on all major OS Mac, Linux, Windows with a nice graphical GUI if needed and a web interface.

An integration into the most used browsers would be nice as well.

Anyone knows such a thing?

Get yourself a D-Link NAS. It has both a download client and a bitorrent client. Both accessible through a web interface. That way, you can offload downloading from your computer to the device and access the results later over the network.

That would be probably the easiest way. But instead of D-LINK I'll go for QNAP. But not at the moment because i have to put a few bucks aside first. So in the meantim I'm looking for an alternative. Maybe even an alternative taht will run on the QNAP/D-Link as well. ;) – user13497 Sep 30 '11 at 19:45
Depending on what you're trying to download, several applications offer web UI and multi-platform apps. I.e., uTorrent runs on either PC or Mac OS and exposes a web interface and even an Android app to allow you to control downloads. Several other solutions offer the same. – Traveling Tech Guy Sep 30 '11 at 20:32
