But I cann't! The file seems to have 0 bytes, and the file would not

The same thing happens when we try to download J2EE 1.4_01 SDK, I
think we can not download any thing from java.sun.com.

Any Idea? Is it on of proscribes against Iran? How can we get the
files from sun?

We used to download everything from Sun without any problem.

That‘s exactly because you are downloading it from Iran. Use a proxy server which has a none Iranian IP address, then you can proceed with your download.

Unfortunately, sun  limits the download  from it site for IRAN IP range. I
don't know about any tools for solving the problem. But I've made a trick
for it. If you have a host with an IP out of IRAN range you can simply
download your file from SUN into the hosting (by writing a simple servlet,
using URL connection and blah blah) and then download the file from host
machine directly to you machine

if you do not have anywhere to upload the JSSE, you
can join a shareware software as morpheus, Ares,
kazza or... and share your file then simply let us

Sun restricts Iran's ip address.
you can download  jre from: java.com/en/download/download_the_latest.jsp
or you can download bea web logic 9.0 application server.after instalation you have jdk  1.5
in your system.

as it seems SUN has blocked the IP address for some
countries, including IRAN. I can't download  it either.
but I'm really curious to find a trick.
appreciate if anyone can help.

IP addresses that reside in Iran can not download  from sun. one solution is using ISPs which use non-iranian IPs that u may not find easily. other solution is coding ur own IP address which is a programming problem. last solution is using some proxy addresses. this may be the easiest way.

Answer #8    Answered By: Amelia Schmidt     Answered On: Apr 28

Some proxies put limit on the amount of download  so
you cannot download large files!

Another simple solution is to tell one of our friends
in US or Canada or whereever except those countries
which are in SUN's black list(!!!) to download those
files and put them in a ftp server so you can download
them. I also have linux version of j2se 1.4 and 1.5.

you can use emule www.emule-project.net or sun download  manager

Answer #10    Answered By: Jennie Harris     Answered On: Apr 28

Yes, It is.
Sun's JSSE (integrated with JDK from version 1.4) has 128 bit encryption
alghorithms which is forbidden for several countries, among them Iran.

I have Linux versions. Call me, if it helps and I'll send it for you.

Try a public anonymous proxy from somewhere else, there's a long list
at http://www.proxy4free.com/page1.html

I use, which works good from my connection.

P.S. to test each proxy try 'telnet <ip> <port>' in windows or 'nc
<ip> <port>' in linux, to see if they're reachable.

as you wished to help this group for downloading the
latest version of JSSE, please, if possible, for a
short period, upload it somewhere and give us the
related link.
after all, it's not our fault to pay back.

Thanks for all your replies and helps. One of our colleagues emailed
me a very interesting URL which mirrors all public downloads. You can
find every version of jdk, jre.... in it.
Just Visit
It does not support resumes, but could be very useful.

Hope it will not be filtered, by Iranian ISPs or USA Government. As
you've noticed it will become hard to be an IT man in Iran, no one
wants you to have the cutting age technologies! Just imaging what will
happen if apache.org, hibernate.org, eclipse.org, sourceforge.org …
sites decide to filter Iran IP.
