Use this method if you do not have a high-speed internet connection or you want to create an installation repository on your own machine or on the network within your corporate firewall for machines that do not have access to the internet.

Review the ReadMe file on the download web page for installation instructions for using either the IBM Installation Manager method or the Download Director or HTTP method.

In addition to WebSphere Application Server Network Deployment, both download methods provide access to additional installation repositories, including:
