FTP operation when attempting to download "almostexisting" files...
Posted on 1998-01-28
I've tried the following:
Uploading a 10MB file from one client.
While uploading is in progress, a second client starts
downloading the very same filer client.
The Second client then starts downloading the actual
filesize on disk (say 160KB)instead of the "soon to be 10MB"
The first clients continues uploading its 10MB.
The second client ends it download-session when 160KB
Finally the first client finishes with uploading 10MB and
ends its session.
WILL THIS ALWAYS BE THE CASE WITH OVERLAPPING UPLOADS/DOWNLOADS WHEN USING FTP, or is this
server-depentent??? (E.g UNIX allows this, but an NT server
would block the file completely)
Or... are there different FTP-protocol versions which operate different?
