The ftp hash command prints a # for every packet downloaded. However I have seen that there are different packet sizes used (1024 or 2048 bytes) across platforms which renders tracking the ftp progress inconsistent.
As we use ftp to download large files in the background I need to track download progress, and counting the number of #'s appeared the best solution.
Is there a command in ftp that allows you to define the packet size for the hash command?
