Hi :)
Does anyone know if there is an ftp with a resume option?
If not, would it be at all possible for one of you nice programmers out
there
in AW land to PLEEEEEEEEEEES make an ftp with a resume on it, for those of
us with dial up and can't stay connected long enough to upload a large file
after trying for 2 days?
Just wondering :)

Don't know much about FTP, but I think that both the software and the server
have to support it.

Most servers do support resuming downloads. I would think that those same
servers would support resuming uploads.

Could be, but the feature would only be there if the designers tought of it.
Resumed downloads do not for certain mean resumed uploads.

CuteFTP is by far the best FTP software out there. 4.2.2 is the latest
version of it but it is only a 30 day trial. Anyone have a serial/crack for
it? :-)

I think all ftp clients support resuming if the upstream server does. I like GetRight: www.getright.com which can be legit for $25.
The free version is ad driven. RealPlayer has one which seems to d/l automatically at certain ZDnet sites and takes over as the ftp
client (my getright went poof -- I had to uninstall the RP ftp client and put getright back in the startup folder). RP wouldn't be
so bad if it werent for the obnoxious ads which pop up and can crash you if your resources are marginal. Anything AOL gets its hands
on turns crappy -- now the realplayer on my old computer crashes it every time I try to play a streaming media.

CuteFTP is by far the best FTP client I've ever seen... I would recommend it
over any other. It has the resume feature (look for it in the options), and
many many more. I did have a crack for this...but lost it in a
reformat/reinstall. Lately I tried to download it again, along with a crack
(try http://www.crackz.ws/) However, GlobeScape has since added server auth
to the software. No matter what I tried...server always rejected the
crack... Good luck, and let me know if you get it too work.

I'm working on setting up a server (look for it to be online within the next
1- 1 1/2 weeks) and thus I have looked into FTP software. John Viper is
right... You have to have a decent piece of server software... Not all of it
is capable of using the resume uploads feature.

Eek! They got Real, too? No wonder the thing sucks so bad, I never liked
it, but I didnt know they sold out to AOL... (thing I hated most was all
the advertisements to upgrade for free, bringing you only to a page telling
you its FREE! for only $29.95.)

Yeah, AOL bought 'em out couple of years ago. My daughter uses AOL so i'm stuck with Real (it installs automatically if you don't
have it). But I used to think Real Video was the greatest -- I watched the Rover land on Mars in real time with it. What a trip.

AOL owns everything on the Windows platform that M$ doesn't. Unfortunately the only serious instand message choices are AIM and ICQ.
The latter is better, but turning into Adware (unless they took that off in one of the updates I don't ever bother downloading
anymore because they just turn it more and more like AIM) and the former is a pain in the ass that little kiddies like to use.

"I like to go on AOL when I get home!"
--Lame kiddies that don't realize the internet extends FAR beyond the corners of their cute little Buddy Lists and parental
controls. (PLEASE teach your daughter the difference between AOL and the internet so I don't find the need to do so when she's 20
and bumps into me on the street while)

Well wing, she's 27 and an Capoeira Angola expert (that's an African martial art and/or dance). She's planning a trip to Brazil to
attend the International Capoeira Angola Conference and a trip to Seattle to represent Louisiana in the National Poetry Slams. I
think if I dumped AOL I'd be another domestic violence stat.

MSN Messenger Service works fine. The ads are relegated to the hotmail which you can just not open up and a little partition at the
bottom of the window.

BTW I just noticed yet another ftp client -- NetAnts, www.netants.com Don't know anything about it except it's supposed to have
all th bells and whistles -- multithreading, resume, clip-board aware, etc that GetRight has. And it's free, but I don't know how
obnoxious its ads are.
