Is there an ftp program that allows for multi-thread ftp uploads ? Want faster upload


Hi,

I upload picture files to an ftp server. I can't do much about my upload speed but I think that a multi-thread upload may yield the same kind of improvements that a multi-thread download yields. Any ideas ?


Thanks,

b

Maybe Prozilla.

So you want the files to be split in parts and uploaded to several different servers? That would be faster - but is probably not what you want.
Uploading to 1 server (and keep the integrity of the file) can probably not be accelerated by threads that simultaneously use the same infrastructure, I think.

j-ray,

yeah, I pretty much want what you said. Is there another protocol, perhaps that would allow me to get pictures off of my laptop to a server more qickly, then ?

You could look at split or star, but it depends if there is a bottleneck at

1. your output
2. network in between
3. the target server.

if so, there's no way to force a quart through a pint sized pipe any faster.
