The HTTP (enhanced) download option downloads selected files from outside of the Teradata network to any location on your network using a browser. This option, by default, installs and uses the Akamai NetSession Interface to make the process more efficient and reliable, especially for large files. If you choose not to install this download manager (for example, because your corporate network policies prevent the installation), you can still download your software by clicking an alternate link.

Some pop-up blockers can interfere with viewing Akamai NetSession Interface windows that contain information about your downloads. Turn off any pop-up blockers or enable pop-ups for the ESD site before proceeding. See the documentation for your browser or third-party pop-up blocker for instructions about how to do this. Some browsers also require Flash to be enabled in order for the Akamai NetSession Interface windows to display. Refer to your browser's Help to allow the ESD site to run Flash.
