Typically, the HTTP download option described below would only be available to Teradata employees on the Teradata network who download software for a non-ESDM tax exempt customer. This option bundles the selected files in one zip file and downloads the file.

The use of the HTTP option is not recommended when downloading over 500 MB of files. If the combined size of the selected files amounts to over 500 MB, download the files in smaller batches by selecting fewer files at a time or use a different download option.
  1. In a web browser, go to http://esd.teradata.com and log in using the credentials provided by email.
