    Ubuntu 15.04 is out but instead of downloading it to my local PC I wanted to put it directly into the Proxmox ISO directory. To do that:
    Code:
    1. SSH into Proxmox and use your root credentials
    2. cd /var/lib/vz/template/iso
    3. wget http://releases.ubuntu.com/15.04/ubuntu-15.04-server-amd64.iso
    That is it. You can use this for other ISO images found on the web also. Skips the step of having to download once, then upload. Also easy to do from one's phone.

    Not sure why I didn't think of this one earlier - thanks for the tip.

    wget is an awesome little tool, I use it on an almost daily basis. The usual method is to find what I want to download in a real browser (aka on my desktop, phone, whatever with a GUI), right-click it and 'copy link address' (or the appropriate similar command in whatever browser you have), then in an SSH window just type 'wget ' (yes, with a space at the end), paste, enter. But for those occasional times when wget isn't available, curl will do the job as well and is included practically everywhere - 'curl -O <url>' (thats a capital o option) works just like wget with no options.

    esx works the same way... just select the correct local folder in /vmfs

    That was much easier. @TuxDude I use putty so it is wget (space) right click.
