Web Based Mode for Ibm Installation Manager 1.8

With the Release of Ibm Installation Manager 1.8.0 , IBM has added one more Mode for Installation/Un-Installation etc of Websphere Product viz the Web Based Mode

So we have the Following Modes in IIM 1.8:
1) Graphical Mode
2) Silent mode
3) Console Mode
4) Web Based Mode

I have downloaded 1.8.2 for Linux from IBM FIX central . Click HERE for the download

NOTE : Use this Mode ONLY if you have trouble accessing the other Modes . Ensure  you have a Very Stable and High Speed Network to try this But I would not Recommend it

If there is any glitch in the network your installation may be in an inconsistent State Hence use Web Based as a Last Resort
