Hi Hiroshi,

of course you can.

Assuming you want to download splunkforwarder-6.3.3-f44afce176d0-linux-2.6-amd64.deb - you can simply copy paste the wget link that is shown on the download page.

The wget looks like: wget -O splunkforwarder-6.3.3-f44afce176d0-linux-2.6-amd64.deb 'http://www.splunk.com/bin/splunk/DownloadActivityServlet?architecture=x86_64&platform=linux&version=...'

Just change the wget -O to curl -L -o
The final command should look like
curl -L -o splunkforwarder-6.3.3-f44afce176d0-linux-2.6-amd64.deb 'http://www.splunk.com/bin/splunk/DownloadActivityServlet?architecture=x86_64&platform=linux&version=...'

That's all.

Just updated or copy-paste purposes

if [ $pkg = "tgz" ]; then
   filename="${product}-${version}-${hash}-Linux-${arch}.${pkg}"
elif [ $os = "windows" ]; then
   filename="${product}-${version}-${hash}-${arch}-release.${pkg}"
else

md5File="${filename}.md5"
echo $filename         # Verify this is correct
