Hi,

I have a very big problem with an FTP file.
I'm programming a FTP Client for updating  and dowloading files from internet via FTP.
I try to do a ResumeUpdate function that allow users to break an upload and to resuming later.

When I try to seek my Internet file (already opened for writing), the CInternetFile class throws an exception.
I read Microsoft documentation and I see that seek is allow only for the CHttpFile class.

My question is:
there is a way to buypass this exception, that is there is a way to seek an opened for writing internet file????

You should be able to do that by using 'CInternetFile::Seek
':

pIF->Seek ( lSizeOfDownloadedFileOnDisk, CFile::begin);

I'm uploading and not downloading a file. If yuo read the seek help on CInternetFIle, you will see that seek is allowed only for ChttpFile.

Thanks for your answer

Try with a "InternetSetFilePointer". It's a Win32 function (WININET.DLL).

Also teh InternetSetFilePointer has a big problem. You can call it only with file opened in read mode.

Thanks !

>>to break an upload and to resuming later.

Well, I thought you wanted to resume a download. AFAIK, resuming uploads is not supported by the protocol...
