Re-use login thread
Posted 13 March 2003 - 05:11 PM
I am downloading from ftp servers that only allow 1 login per IP. These servers are normally very busy, therefore login on the server might take upto 12 hours.
After login I select the files to download from the ftp server using the global queue. If I then start the global queue, the queue can not use the login already available but must login again (which might take again upto 12 hours).
I have set Max threads per site to 1 but still the first login to the server is not used.
Smartftp should be able to use the login thread to start the globalqueue

I second this
I've just begun to use smartFTP in replacement to BitBeamer (successor of LeechFTP for those wondering) ; so far the program looks better overall, but is still lacking some options from bitbeamer (such as the one stated above). I the devs haven't already, they should check bitbeamer to "borrow" some ideas 8)
I'm convinced SmartFTP is bound to be the best win32 FTP client around, but it's not perfect as of yet :wink:
Keep up the good work !
EDIT : another one that would be nice :
To be able to adjust the max # of threads per site on the fly, in the "Connections" tab of the "Transfers" panel
Currently, if i am right, there is only one global setting in "Settings > Queue > Threads > Max threads per site"

I think there is max. only thread per site. I doesn't make sense to use more than one thread because there is only one data connection per site.
