Broken Download Altera Quartus Lite

Hello, 

 

When I try to download Altera Quartus Prime Lite 16 from http://dl.altera.com/?edition=lite I get a broken link :( 

 

The link I've got is: http://download.altera.com/akdlm/software/acdsinst/16.0/211/ib_installers/quartuslitesetup-16.0.0.21... 

I've tried both direct and Akamai download, but it seems both try to access the same (missing) resource. 

The "download.altera.com" domain isn't responding. 

 

Any guidance on how to proceed?

Same problem trying to download still. 

 

download.altera.com is OK, it is an alias for downloadedgesuite.net. 

 

There is no dns record for downloadedgesuite.net, however. EdgeSuite is an Akamai thing, so the problem is with the Akamai people who are obviously hosting all of the altera download center files.

Altera's web site isn't the most reliable. Try again late Monday.

I've had the same problem trying to download the update. It looks like download.altera.com can't be found.

I had the same problem. Furthermore I mailed the following to the webmaster (I had no reply as yet). I don't know whether or not do the links I refer to in the mail appear to be broken because of the unavailability of the download.altera.com server. 

 

Two links appear to be broken, that are found in the following page: 

https://www.altera.com/downloads/software/faq/installation-faq.html  

 

 

Both links are supposed to lead to instructions how to download or install  

Altera software from the command line. More precisely, the first one is in  

the answer to question 

Can I install ACDS via command line?  

 

 

where the source code is:  

 

please refer to <a href="http://quartushelp.altera.com/current/mergedprojects/global/install/gl_view_install.htm" (http://&quot;http://quartushelp.altera.com/current/mergedprojects/global/install/gl_view_install.htm...;)>Installing Software at the Command Prompt</a>  

 

The second broken link is in the answer to question 

Why do I still get the ?error connecting to the Internet? error message even though I have a working Internet connection and configured my proxy setting correctly?  

 

 

where the source code is:  

 

please refer to <a href="http://quartushelp.altera.com/current/mergedprojects/global/install/install_pro_sw_command.htm" (http://&quot;http://quartushelp.altera.com/current/mergedprojects/global/install/install_pro_sw_comm...;)>Downloading and Installing Software at the Command Prompt</a>  

 

Furthermore, the reason why I was looking for that information is  

that I could not download the Quartus Prime software, since my  

attempts to get the tarball were repeatedly frustrated by the  

unreachability of the download.altera.com server.  

 

Thank you very much, in advance, for your help.

The download server was temporarily unavailable. Now it's back on air, so the problem should have been solved for good :)

Did you create a Service Request? (From myAltera Home / mySupport, just in case). Technical people should be alerted about this problem (if it is still a problem).
