Simp-downloader script Reference

The simp-downloader script was created to simplify downloading SIMP installation assets from the official Sicura download server.

You can download the script from here.


Simp-downloader is a shell script that will run in any Bash environment. After download, you may need to modify the permissions to allow execution:

$ chmod +x simp-downloader

All command line arguments are optional. If run without any arguments, it will download the latest stable CentOS ISO for Sicura Enterprise, using the license key in /etc/sicura/license.key.

$ simp-downloader
