    URLStream - does not fire IOError on network cable unplugged while downloading!!!

    Adrian Pirvulescu Level 1

      Hi.

       

      I a using the example from the URLStream Class documentation to download files from a web-server to my computer.

      The problem is that I have unstable connection and sometimes the computer goes offline. Then the download progress stops and none of the error events is fired. Actually the download just get stucked and the apps remains idle. This happens on XP, Vista, and Ubuntu 8.x, but works perfectly on mac OSX where I receive right away an IOError event.

       

      What should I do? Is there a bug in URLStream !!!

      Can someone confirm this issue?

       

      Please help,
