Distributed Downloading ????????
Posted on 2003-11-29
I and my friend (my neighbour ) , both have a broadband internet connection. Our download speeds are always between 12-14 kbps. We are in a LAN which has a main server. We use the main server to gain access to the internet.
The machine of my IP is 172.16.17.153 and the IP of my friend's machine is 172.16.17.195.
We both can share files over the LAN with a very high speed.
I want to download a 750MB file from a server. The download manager tells me that i will have to wait 14 hours to get the job done. What i want to ask is ,is there a way to download a single file simultaneously by my friend and me, so that the total download speed sums up to 24-28kbps. Some sort of distributed downloading ??? I think this idea is great !!!!!!!
Are there any applications that will do the job, or is there any other way ???????????
