How do I get my site to work with download managers?

My site requires the user to login before downloading files, I want to add support for download managers like Orbit and Free Download Manager. I tried to download the file using these managers and enter the username and password inside the managers, but they load my login page, not the file.

My login is typical, built on cakephp and doesn't even have CSRF.

Is there something special I need to do so that boot administrators can log in successfully?

Boot managers are not logged in. However, they must respect cookies. I believe the problem with your system is the cookie lifetime. You have most likely set that cookies expire when the browser is closed. This way, download managers are sending cookies that have already expired.
