in my application, i need to be able to have the ftp portion of it resume downloads if the connetion is broken.  it's currently an mfc app, but any help i can get will work.  mfc's CFtpConnection does not support this and i can't find any api function to do the trick. can someone lead me to the right answer?

also, FtpGetFile and CFtpConnection's counterpart both support a cache, but if the cache is deleted..........

I don't know if it can be implemented in CFtpConnection, but the FTP protocol has a REST command.

If you cannot find a function like REST , you should get the FTP socket from the CFTPConnection ( the class should have a member function to return you the socket ) , then pass the REST command manually using send() , and then attempt to download You should know how to use rest ( REST <size> )

There is a very important problem you might have : Some FTP servers recognize the REST command ONLY IF YOU SEND IT EXCACTLY BEFORE THE RETR command .

Usually FTP clients send first TYPE , PORT and RETR command . If CFtpConnection does not allow you to pass something before the RETR command , passing REST before the TYPE command , does not guarantee that the server will actually restart . It is server-depended .
