Default scheduling queues

I know there is a schedule option under Tools. However, I find the need to have a download manager to help spread out downloads. A nice option for FlashFXP would be to right click on files, and be able to schedule them.

Say there are 50 files I'd like to download, 10 at a time. Download 10, wait an hour or two, then download 10, etc, until its finished. If I could highlight 10 files, right click, choose schedule, then set the time I'd like them to download, that would be great.

Just make queue's with those 10 files.. or have a few FFXP's open.

I don't see the point in adding such an option.

Default reason

The reason is for those users that have satellite connections through Direcway.

DirecWay has a "Fair Access Policy", which, in short, is a limit on your downloading. If you download more than 169mb in 4 hours, they cut your speed to like 3k/sec.

The way around this is to download some files, then wait for your "FAP" to recharge, then download some more, then wait, etc, until you have what you need.

Now, there are some download managers out there, such as AutoFTP. The problem is, AutoFTP doesn't work with GLFTPD sites. FlashFXP does.

Opening multiple sessions will not solve the problem. It will only cause you to get "FAPPED" quicker.

In my opinion your best solution would be to throttle your speed so you never download more then their limit.

There are no immediate plans to update the schedule and a suggestion like this doesn't really have much popularity.

SirCyRo, I dont think you understood what I mean't. .. have the 4 copies or what ever of FFXP open with 10 files in each queue and set them all with different schedules, if thats what you need.

or just bigstar's suggestion...
