question: are multithreaded and segemented downloads allowed

Post by Windows Thunderstruck »

i got a question
are multithreaded and segemented downloads allowed on the ftp server
if so are there any decent ftp apps that support such a thing
it needs to support tls1.0
im looking for a way to speed up downloads as they are very slow on this other pc

Supported: Yes
Clients? Dunno, not seen any doing that, but have not looked either. Remember, the FTP protocol is very old, so it may not exist.
Speed: That's because my connection is very slow at the moment downloading more stuff for the archive, adding more threads to it won't help as it will only share the available bandwidth across more threads. You will have to live with the speeds until I can get a better connection.
