First of all you need to go to SSL Secure Proxy and then you have to type the web address in the box provided at the upright bottom of the page and after this is done, you are ready to resume download with idm. Once this is done you can see that the idm speed has gone much better & is fast and resume capability also becomes yes. It works 100%.

  1. Open the same file in the browser, click to download it again. When the dialogue window appear select to download it later. (Check to ensure that the file must have the same file size and from the same link/server).
  2. Open IDM manager window and double click the file you have selected to download later.
  3. Select the full address field and press ctrl+c to copy to the clipboard.
  4. Now, double click the file which has not been resuming and paste the address there which you had copied earlier in the address field and then press ok.
  5. In the IDM manager window click the file and press resume. 90% of the resuming problems has been resolved by this little tip and trick.

I just want to share how to change resume capability "No" becoming resume capability "Yes" when you download a file via Internet Download Manager. Just click properties on your download list and erase "?start=0" at the end of your link address, then resume it, and... Bingo! Now, the resume capability becomes "Yes"

Resume capability is a variable given by a website you are downloading from. The download manager decodes the value and shows it on screen. In cases when resume capability is set to "No" it means that the web server (apache, nginix, lighttpd) has a variable set to "No" when it comes to resume downloads. There isn’t pretty much you can do about it but wait for a download to complete (no matter which site you use), you should let it download 100 % without interruption.
