Split Download beteen multipe users
Posted on 2002-06-10
I am writing a file sharing program and I would like to know how to split the file download beteen multiple users. In other words, simultaniously download different pieces of a file from different users and then put the pieces together (Similar to the way that Kazaa or Morpheus do)
I was planing to use the winsock control for the file transfer, but if you have another idea, that is fine as well.
At the very minimum I need to know how to resume a file transfer, but I would really like to have the functionality to download the same file from multiple users at the same time.
For 500 points I need some source code. A zip sent to firstname.lastname@example.org would be great!
Thanks in advance!
