Meanwhile 1/ I have installed GetRight, 2/ I have also changed my router, 3/ I have enabled Ports 80 and 443 and HTTP and HTTPS features on my router; GetRight still will not download any files from archive org. I'm now trying it from Germany, though from Russia and the Baltics it was OK. uTorrent works ok, but this is not a comparable thing, imho. I would like to know which Port should/could be enabled or else tried then, provided that archive.org is running the https protocol? I'm attaching a screenshot concerning a try with GetRight.

To put any doubts aside, I have downloaded -- while using the 5 aforementioned download managers (FreeDownloadManager, Internet Download Manager, ReGet Deluxe, FlashGet, GetRight 6.5) --- several files from Russian and German servers for free software (all kinds of free programs), and thus no problems up to now have arisen. So, I do claim that there is something wrong with your server. You should probably explain what substantial changes have been made to the settings of your server lately that further downloading is getting not possible at present. I'm still using Windows XP SP3 software and a T61 IBM notebook for downloading.

Not sure if it's related, but Time Warner Cable had misconfigured DNS for archive.org from 1/10 until 1/12 GMT. If you still have trouble now, this information is probably not relevant.

There is still no automatic downloading from your server exceptionally, e.g.,I have tried the following link:

GetRight Pro 6.5 unable to connect and / or verify the above connection.
