Subject: [gftp] multi-threading downloads

Version: 2.0.17
CentOS 4.4

I'm having an issue downloading using sftp (in gftp).  It's slow.  I
believe it have something to do with not using multiple threads to
download as when i use cuteftp in windows i get 10x speed increase.

If I had 10 directories to download i could drag each one over and it
would start 10 transfers.  But I want it to start 10 transfers even if
I pull 1 directory down (with many files in).

I hope this make sense.

Any help is much appreiciated.



I don't know whether they would work with CentOS, but have you looked at kftpgrabber (Homepage: http://www.kftp.org) and lftp (http://lftp.yar.ru/)?

Those are some of the FTP clients that I found in using Synaptic (the Debian Linux GUI package manager), when I searched for ftp client.

I switched to kftpgrabber, when I had my previous problem with gftp and Passive Mode (as I posted to the list).It was the only way that I found to upload files to my web sites, the hosting of which now requires Extended (?) Passive Mode.

I hope that this helps.
