Post date: Jul 20, 2010 10:49:42 AM

As the ftp got retired, the following procedure can be utilized for downloading patches directly onto the UNIX servers.

* Login to "My Oracle Support"

* Search for the patch

* Go to the download page

* Click on "show details" link beneath the "Download" button

* Right click on the patch name and Copy URL

Then to download the patch using "wget" follow these instructions:

* Check "wget" command is available OR install it.

Run the following command using your My Oracle Support login and password:

wget --http-user=<username> --http-password=<password>--output-document=<filename> "paste the above copied address here in quotes"


wget --http-password=password ""

By this way one can download the patches faster and easier.
