Question Multi-threaded downloading

Ok I have searched I keep seeing the response of why to you want that?

Some of us have a legitimate reason for it.
I work from home (telecommute) and as you may be aware Australia has some pretty shocking internet set-ups..
The fastest home connectivity we can get is a 1.5Mbit/256Kbit DSL connection and with this connection ftp is listed as a non priority traffic.. ie the cap the crap out of it.

My work from home requires me to maintain a bunch of hosting servers located in the US, part of this is downloading firewall and http log files (which even rar'd up are over the 1-2Gb mark) to be analysed locally etc..

I absolutely love flash fxp and have been using it for god knows how long now, but the one down fall is the ability to open up and split a single file into a multi-part download, as well as running multiple connections to the same server. Much like WSFTP Pro does, the only reason I run ws-ftp is it allows me to download my log files alot quicker then I ever could. BUT in saying the wsftp is buggy, crash's and I just don't like it.

So I was hoping to request this feature to be included in flashfxp, I feel by the vibe etc around that it's the one feature that everyone is crying out for..

Please please please search the forums before you post...
This has been brought up so many times and it really doesn't make any sense to waste another topic on it, no matter if your reasons are legitmate or not.

Basically this isn't possible in the existing FlashFXP design, It will require a rewrite. We're currently planning a rewrite but that is still quite some time from now.
