Subject: [gftp] multi-threading downloads
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
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.
