REST command

The purpose of the REST command is to tell the FTP server to set its marker at which the file transfer has to be restarted. Issuing the REST command does not actually initiate the transfer. After issuing a REST command, the client must send the appropriate FTP command to transfer the file. The server will use the marker specified in the REST command to resume file transfer at the specified point.
