Is there any secure download manager that will recover from temporary
communication failures ... to save me the trouble of cracking up my large
files and then reassembling them?
You can use rsync over ssh. Ssh provides the network security, and rsync
provides the "download manager". Since rsync is built to replicate files in
an efficient manner, and only downloads the parts of the file that are
different on each machine, it can be "interrupted" with full recovery.
Both rsync and ssh are available for Windows, and come native in most Linux
distributions. (For a Windows ssh, I recommend PuTTY)
You might want to Google /rsync +ssh/; the first couple of links are
excellent (the 2nd link leads to http://oreilly.com/pub/h/38 )
