I'm new to Linux and I'm now using RHEL 6. When I'm trying to download software they force me to register on the Red Hat Network.

Is there any other process to download software for RHEL without that?

This does not answer your question directly but it may be a good solution. Switch to CentOS. It is a direct clone of Red Hat. Check this link out:

I've been using CentOS for many years and love it.
