View Full Version : [all variants] Threaded command line FTP
February 20th, 2010, 03:43 AM
Does anyone know of a CLI program that can thread sending files to an ftp server?
ftp -i <whateverserver>
(10 get sent at once instead of one at a time)
Thanks for the help.

If you just want to be able to send them one by one, you could use a simple shell script like this:
for i in 'ls'
ftp -i ....

Threading is the wrong term for this. A limitation of FTP is that only one transfer can take place over a given client/server connection. To transfer 10 files at once, you would need 10 FTP connections -- something that the server may not allow. If you have shell access to the remote, perhaps you could tarball the files and decompress them on the other side.
